Exchange Server 5.5: Priv.edb gets too big.

The Priv.edb file is too big at the  moment, is there anyway I can compact this file down in size, and how?

Thanks in advance.

yes, by doing an offline defrag using eseutil.  you'll need to stop the Information Store service to do it, and you'll need %100 of the space used by the edb file on the disk drive, i.e. if you have a 10 Gigabyte database you need 10 Gigabytes of free space on the hard drive to do an offline defrag.  Here's a place to start on learning about eseutil:
