-------------------------------------------------------If the mailbox itself if 
40+ GB, compressing the store isn't going to do
anything.

-------------------------------------------------------Hi
What about first backing up the store and do an offline defrag? I have
seen a store go 50% less after defrag. 
Also you can you mail box manager to do some clean up on that mail box
like deleting deleted and junk items over 30 days.

-------------------------------------------------------Hey folks,

Just a quick poll - what's the biggest overall store, and single mailbox
you've seen?

We've got a client looking for assistance, and as it turns out they have
a store of 180 GB and a single mailbox of just about 45 GIGS.

Both far surpass anything I've seen, and I've worked with some big
companies in the past, but no one else has come close.

Needless to say, they're having problems, especially opening that
mailbox.  Anyone have any thoughts on a  way to extract the data in
there?  We've tried Outlook, OWA, MDBView, Exmerge, IMAPping and POPping
it off, but nothing seems able to get there.  Mail does keep getting
delivered, however, as it continues to grow.

Ideas, no matter how screwy, are welcome.

Rick
