and run it?  would ihave to build up another exchange server and then move
the database there or just another windows server?

Michael,

You wont see any new space when a user deletes items from their mailbox
until you run an offline defrag.  All the ESE engine will do is mark the
pages within the db as blank space.  In order to recover that blank space,
and offline defrag would need to be performed using the ESEUTIL utility.

If you don't have enough space on the server, you can copy ESEUTIL.EXE and
ESE.DLL to a seperate server along with the DB in question to perform the
offline defrag.  Now, I don't know how large the DB is and what kind of
network connectivity, so you might want to get an offline backup of the IS
and restore it to another location.  That might decrease the copy time.

You won't get the space back until an off-line defrag is done on your
databases.  Look over the doco for Exutil and if you do an offline defrag
insure you have atleast as much free diskspace as your databases are taking
up or bad things happen.

I have an exchange server that is running low on disk space. I have cleaned
up old files, etc. and had users delete unwanted stuff and sent and deleted
messages, but it doesn't help.  how can i manually reclaim that space to try
and salvage this server?=20

Thanks,
