Our email is not working we are running windows 2000 domain and exchange 2000

The mail box store dismounted and won't remount
This is the error in the event viewer

Information Store (3506) Database D:\ProgramFiles\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\priv1.ebs  reached max size of 16383mb  Database Cannot be restarted...

I wasn't aware that the priv1.ebs file had a size limit  how can I reduce the size of the file?  Am I able to just delete it or is that the file storeing everyones email?  I can't have people delete their emails if I can't get the store to mount

This is quite urgent

thanks for the help
