Hi All,

I'm System Administrator and quite new in Ms Exchange 5.5. I would like to
ask you something about it.

  1) I have 20 users connecting to MS Exchange and each of them has their
own mailbox. The size of mailbox
keep accumulating as they keep so many email in their mailbox. Because of
this Exchange database become very big and I check
exchsvr folder is more than 5Gigabite and took up my harddisk space. I asked
the users to clean their mailbox by deleting all unimportant email but the
size of exchsvr folder remain 5 Gigabite. It seems like even after deleting
email it doesn't affect Ms exchange database.
Is it possible to compress the database to reduce harddisk space ?

Kindly advise me.

  2 ) Could you pls give me  web site where I can get more info about MS
Exchange 5.5 ?
