Thanks to all you GURU's out there for the replies on this thread. I
have been doing weekly offline defrags using ESEUTIL, thinking it was a
best practice solution for keeping the databases clean and in good
shape. I didn't realize this was doing me no good, and quite poosibly
harming the databases along the way. No more, again thanks.

Subject: [exchangelist] ESEUTIL

Hey all,

I want to reduce the size of my e2k databases, and ive heard eseutil
will defrag and free up clear space in the databases.

Whats the deal with this tool as ive heard people say it can corrupt the
db and all sorts of nightmare stories.

Ive read the MS articles regarding this, but they arent particularly
useful or descriptive.

I know this subject has come up time and again, so I apologize for going
over old subjects.
