Trouble archiving messages

Hi there,

I have the following problem: I recently configured archiving on our XI server that has been running for about eight months. I was able to successfully archive most of the messages, but a couple remained in the

database unarchived. I can display these messages in SXMB_MONI and in report RSXMB_SHOW_REORG_STATUS. According to report RSXMB_SHOW_REORG_STATUS about 186000 messages remain with status 'Marked for deletion' and ' - Asynchr. msgs not in retention period (can be deleted):'. When I do the archiving/deletion, no

messages can be found. I have referenced note 872388 as well as 'archiving checklist', 'archiving and deleting' and 'defining interfaces and retention periods for archiving' in SAP Help. I have also looked at executed most of the programs RSXMB*, but with no success.

Can anyone suggest how I can clean the system and get rid of all the messages?
