Arbitration mailboxes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I am seeking your advise regarding the Arbitration mailboxes. There are the following Arbitration mailboxes including System mailbox and Federation mailbox in Exchange 2010 in Hybrid environment. I need to delete the databases where arbitration mailboxes reside but I can not move them to different DB due to the following reason (inconsistent state). The databases have no mailboxes except arbitration mailboxes but the size is too big. I wanted to seek your advise that if I dismount the database and delete the large DB file and mount the DB then it will create a vey small DB size file but I do not know the repercussion whether is it safe to do or not. I am not worried about data as i dot not know if there is any data associated with arbitration mailboxes.

    Your expert advise will be highly appreciated.

    Regards
