We have an Exchange 2000 standard edition running on Windows 2000.
Yesterday the mailbox store reached it 16GB limit. I increase it
temporarily using the registry fix I found on I have
gotten users to clean up their mailbox and now I need to do an off line
defrag. I spoke with the guy who set this box up over 2 years ago and he
said that he has never done an off-line defrag before. So this will be
the first time running it on this server. Is there anything I need to be
concerned with running off line defrag on this exchange for the first
time. I have read up on it and it seems simple enough, I will do a
complete backup of the exchange before defrag, and I setup test box to
test this on first. Is there anything I should be aware of?

Thanks for your help.
