Hi to all of you,
I have a customer for whom some users have loads of messages, and they would like to clean up things. For example, the manager has over 35,000 messages, mainly in the Sent Messages tab. The thing is, deleting messages is quite a lengthily chore. Deleting only 10 messages took over 20 minutes ! I tried this on one of our server, with an identical setup, to delete 10 messages took somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes. How come can this be so LOOOOOONG ?
This customer is running B1 2007 SP00 PL41. And to add to this, users having a lot of messages are experiencing long login time also. I remember having through this before, so I looked into SAP Notes but did not find anything.
So my questions are:
- why in the world is this so long to delete messages ?
- is there some other way to mass delete these messages ?
- is there a configuration parameter that could speed up the things ?
- is 8.8 or 8.81 as slow deleting messages ?
- can you point me to a SAP Note, if one exists ?
Thanks a lot
Hello Plante Gilles,
Are you using Shift key when you was selecting messages in windows i think it will speed up ?
suppose u have 100000 messages in your send box.
Select first message with Ctrl key and scroll the window and select last message(100000) row holding with Shift key, now you have seleted all message
now use Delete button all message will be delete .
May it will help you

Hi Manvendra Singh NIranjan,
this is the method I used to to select 10 messages - click and then Shift + click. I then clicked the Delete key, and it took B1 more than 30 minutes to delete them. Now imagine how much time it would take to delete 10 000 messages !
This is where my customer have a problem. I can't understand why it takes so much time to delete messages from the system. This is why I asked if there is another way to bulk delete the messages, one that would take a fair amount of time.
