Because when you look at Site, Server, Mailbox Resources, you are seeing how
much space each user is using. But you have to remember Exchange Server
works in a good way, when you send a message for instance, 10Mb to 10 users,
you will see each user with 10Mb of allocated space, but for Microsoft
Exchange Server database, there will be only 10Mb and 10 pointers to the
users. You see? The real size is actually very diferent for what you see in
Mailboxes resources.

I ran an offline defrag using the eseutil command.  I have deleted items
retention set to 1 day.  What I don't understand is why I only got about 4G
back out of the 20+ that I deleted.
 
Any Ideas?

Did you run the Eseutil utility? If not, you need to. That will give you
your space back, assuming you don't have deleted items retension enabled.

I am running Exchange 5.5, SP4 on WIN2kserver SP2.
 
My database has almost double in the last year from 24G to 40G this year.
Even with less employees this year.  I couple of weeks ago I deleted about
20G worth of email from users that were hidden.  I then ran an offline
defrag hoping to get that space back and to my surprise I only got about 20%
back.
 
Any Ideas why?
 
Also, I have been trying to get my users to empty their deleted and sent
items folders to no avail. What can I do or use to do it myself from the
exchange server as a company wide solution.
 
 
Best regards,
Juan
