You could
put a size limit on all inbound and outbound mail (remember that
outbound mail is copied to the Sent Items of the specific user..)
put an even stricter size limit (eg. 150k) on internal distribution
lists (force them to use common space on file servers).
Put a size limit on all mailboxes and educate the users how to archive

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange Database grows every night

Over the past week, I'm using backup exec 8.5 and noticed that the
information store it's backing up has grown between 50 MB to 100 MB
every night. I understand that the database is going to get larger and
it's natural. It just seems like it's growing too fast in size. Maybe
it's not. My question is, how can I keep a strong grip on this database
and keeping it maintained? Are there any specific policies I can put in
place in the system manager to help control the size?
