    so on my mail server, i have the inboxes on a 100gig drive. people were letting their inboxes get too big, so i took the liberty of deleting the trash cans and the sent items…

    so i have been to quite a few stations, and have cleared about 10 gigs of messages from users inboxes, but i fail to see a change in the size of the mail store. before, i had 56 gigs used… after, i still have 56 gigs used.

    what do i have to do to see the change reflected in the amount of free space on the drive containing the mail stores?

    will an off-line defragmentation reduce the size of the mail store? or will the mail store always remain the largest its ever been?

    thanks guys.
