I am using a Exchange 2003 on the server and Office 2003 on the clients, when I run AutoArchive on the clients the ost file remains larger than the db file on the ESM. Why is this the case? Everytime a major AA job has been run I need to delete the ost file andre recreate it.

I have also registered that the ost file was 8,2 giga, but after a AA job the ost file is 3,5 giga and the pst file is 4,6 giga. that means that the file now is allitle bit smaller than the original file, why is this?

Best regards,
