However, even bigger is that by default in Exchange 2003 SP1 retaining undeliverable messages in the Badmail folder is now disabled and its behavior is controlled by a set of registry keys.

Set under: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SMTPSVC\Queuing (note the spelling: ?Queuing?)

Value: MaxBadMailFolderSize
This is a DWORD which defaults to 0 if not set. It is the max size (in KB) that the Badmail folder can grow to before Badmail retension is stopped; thus setting it to 0 turns off the Badmail folder and prevents possible DoS attacks. Messages that would have been sent to Badmail will simply be discarded if the MaxBadMailFolderSize is set to 0. If you set this to -1 (0xFFFFFFFF in hex) it will revert to the pre-SP1 behavior of growing without bound.

Value: BadMailSyncPeriod
This is a DWORD which specifies how often we should check the size of the badmail folder (in minutes). If the BadMailSyncPeriod has not been reached, we won't rescan the directory and discover if Badmail items have been removed manually by the Admin.

Frankly, although these are classified as "warning" messages, my guess is that they are purely informational and are probably only showing up because you have a high level of diagnostic logging set up for your Exchange site. Check your logging level for the Public IS and if it's set to Maximum or Medium, try dialling it down to Minimum, or even turning it off completely.

Hope this helps!
