Exchange 2000 limits

I (now) know that the Exchange has the 16g limit (priv1.edb+priv1.stm) but is there a limit to the pub1's or should those be included in the 16g limit?


P/S.... i have deleted, archived from outlook but the priv1's did not get any smaller.  Will it only get smaller if/when you do the defrag?

    1.   The same limit applies to the pub
    2.   Once the deleted item retention date has passed and online maintenance has completed the space will be reclaimed.  However, it will be reclaimed as white space in the database.  If you wish to shrink the physical file size you need to do an offline defrag.

    Hi Marc.

    WHere do i look for the deleted retention date?

    What is the white space and would new emails use that space before expanding the db?

    How long would  a defrag take & would it be safe to copy the files prior to running the defrag?
