Consider the following scenario:
- You use Microsoft Outlook or you use Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA) to log on to a mailbox in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) environment.
- You verify that the calendar logging feature is enabled.
- You use Internet Message Access Protocol version 4 (IMAP4) to access the calendar folder in the mailbox.
- At the same time, other users log on to the mailbox.
This issue occurs because the IMAP4 service triggers an unnecessary copy on write (COW) action when a calendar cannot be converted to a MIME type. Then, a recoverable item is created in the dumpster root folder. Performance decreases when many unnecessary recoverable items are in the folder.
To work around this issue, use one or more of the following methods:
- Disable the IMAP4 protocol.
- Change to another access method such as Exchange Web Services (EWS).
- Disable the calendar logging feature when you run the
Set-Mailbox -Identity <user-identity> -CalendarVersionStoreDisabled:$true command.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
