Explanation

This Warning event indicates that e-mail items, in one or more mailboxes on the database specified in the event description, have more than 100 search folder links associated with them. Search folder links associate a message in a particular folder to one or more search folders. Search folders are virtual folders which provide easy access to e-mail items matching specific search criteria. For more information about search folders, see: Search Folders on Microsoft Office Online.

This event is generally logged when users synchronize their mobile devices that use Exchange ActiveSync and search folders are left undeleted.
