There is never any need to do an offline defrag unless: (a) PSS has
explicitly instructed you to do so, or (b) the usage patterns of the
database have changed dramatically.

Hello All,
  We just finished doing offline defrag (ESEUTIL /d /p) on our mailbox
stores after implementing storage limits.  Do any shops out there do a
defrag on any regular time interval?   We were guessing 1/quarter during
our regular maintenance down time.
  We are Exchange 2003, Windows Server 2003,  1xFE-2xBE shop.
Thanks, Robert
