Explanation

This Warning event indicates that an invalid event history watermark will be deleted so that all watermark fields are valid. A watermark is a checkpoint stored on the Exchange server that indicates the latest event (an operation such as MailboxCreated, MailboxMoveStarted, or MailboxMoveFailed) was processed on a mailbox. A watermark list helps the event consumers maintain a record of the events processed on a particular mailbox until any given point of time.

A background cleanup process helps delete the old events periodically.
