I'm running Exchange 5.5 on a Windows NT Server.

Mails that are deleted still take disk space, i have checked the mail retention time but it is fine ( the "ghost" mails are much older than the retention time ) and i also ran an offline defrag. The problem still remains.

Any ideas?

What do you mean by "ghost" emails?

Deleted item retention time will only affect the emails that are visible when you do a "Recover Deleted Items" in Outlook. Is that what you are talking about?

The mails were deleted years ago, mail retention time was checked and an offline defrag was made, but the mails are still there. When i say they are there, i mean i can recover them with PowerControls and i shouldn't be able to do that.
