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
