What exactly are the mailbox manager settings? How are the emails being deleted?

Subject: [ExchangeList] free space after offline defrag

Hello everyone


I just have this strange feeling. We got a 2003 SP2 server. I have a mail box manager policy that cleans up junk mail and deleted items after a week. Every Sunday night I get a report that at least 500 MB is deleted. So when I do the offline defrag once a month at least I should get 2 GB of free space back from database. But that doesn’t happen. As an example I ran a defrag last night after 2 month wait and I only got 120 megabyte back. Something is not right and my database keeps growing larger. Any idea?
