Hi Dan, 

I have ran Isinteg ( On a 5.5 server ) and it found several issue's with 
individual mailboxes and broken index's as well as orphaned directories that 
Eseutil does not correct. Eseutil is for External Database file integrity. 
Isinteg goes into the data base file and repairs the internal structure.

Dan, in my experience, just running eseutil with the /d switch does what
you need done. Eseutil will do some basic integrity checks prior to
defragmenting, and will alert you if it finds errors, and at that point
you can decide whether you need isinteg. But otherwise, if it ain't
broke, don't fix it.
