You need limits.  The size will just grow again to what it was, and
beyond, without limits.
If you need the disk space back, you can offline defrag.  If you don't
need the space back, put limits in place and just live with the larger

Subject: [exchangelist] exchange DB growing!! Need advice 
Exchange database is growing. I asked many users to download mails to
personal folder, which they did. But I feel even after this database
size is not reducing. Should I run offline defrag?? Please advice.
I have exchange 2003 on windows 2003
