I deleted several old mailboxes to free up space on the exchange server data drive (separate from the log drive) but whe nI right clk on the data drive it actually shows LESS space...  and the user ideas are still showing up under sys manager "mailboxes" showing that they are still taking up space.  Is there something else I need to do t ofree up the space?

Space will not be free up for a couple of reasons
firstly the deleted mailbox retention policy will retain the maiboxes for a default of 30days and until a backup is done - whichever is the longer

secondly you need to do an offline defrag of the store to relcaim the space - see http://www.petri.co.il/defragment_exchange_2000_2003_server_databases.htm
