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:
