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
