The size shown for EDB and STM files will never decrease unless you do an
offline defrag.  Under most circumstances, an offline defrag is unnecessary
and not recommended.

Check the Application event log for event ID 1221.  Those will show you how
much free space you have within the store files.

Subject: [exchangelist] information store size does not reduce

I have exchange 2003 (SP1) on W2k Server. My store is almost 14.4 GB. 
Since SP2 is not yet released, I may end up in exchange store crossing 16
GB limit.

To avoid storage limit problem, I moved some of my mailbox of server store
to personal folders of user to reduce the information store size.

When I checked store after moving, the size remaining same (ie priv1.edb).
Some of my friends said it will reduce once maintainance of mailbox is run
but inspite of doing it, no change in reduction of size.

Can anyone help me to solve this issue because I am in fix due to storage
