The log files are reduced or deleted by doing a full exchange backup.  The size 
of the edb file decreases when you remove some mails from the information store

Subject: [exchangelist] Database .edb defragment

hi all,
i've defrag the database "priv1.edb"  using eseutil /d
i'm using exchange 2000 enterprise.

before defrag, it's size is like this :
   used :   3.448.905.728 bytes
   free  : bytes
   total :  14.715.023.360 bytes

after defrag :
   used :   3.400.671.232 bytes
   free  :  11.314.352.128 bytes
   total :  14.715.023.360 bytes

so, i only get about 47 MB back.  
and the log files still exist with big size.
how to reduce or delete the log files ?
