Do it this way. First stop SMTP service, then rename badmail folder into
badmail1, and create the new folder and name it badmail (you don't have to
rename it but it could help). It will prevent system from freezing. Then
delete all badmail files through explorer (may take hours!, so plan it
carefully), and then delete badmail1. These files are messages that never
found recipients, so they will keep coming. You should check the folder
periodicaly or make a script to empty it on regular basis (some messages
could be real ones-sender misspelled the recipient address). Read MS KB
315631-it's nice thing. These files can give you a lot of info about
what's going on with your messaging system. Regarding warning message send
me the full message with its source.
