the database just makes space available inside of itself .... the
physical drive space will NEVER decrease unless you perform an offline
defrag (eseutil)

Hey all
Exchange 2000
Our Database (DB) is 15,1 GB big (the 4 files together)
But the mailboxes together are only 4,2 GB! 
I know that exchange needs more space , and not only (in our case) 4,2
Gb, but check this out:
A few days ago our DB was 16,1 GB big (the 4 files...) and the mailboxes
together were 7,9 GB!!! i told my coworkers to tidy up their mailboxes,
and now we have onl 4,2 GB mailboxes. shouldnt the DB shrink 4 GB ????
