Exchange Information Store filling up very quick

Starting last night my information store is filling up really fast and its creating tons of transaction logs.  I turned on circular logging so the logs wouldn't keep filling up but I still need to figure out why or what is filling up the store and generating all the logs.  HELP!

Do you have any MAC clients on your server?  Any of them running entorage?

Yes, 1 MAC client.
Entourage has been known to cause this issue in exchange.  Disconnect that client and see if the problem remains.

Is there any documentation for the Entourage problem?
I was looking around for it, but couldnt find anything right out of the gates.  I used to work at MS in exchange support, and just remembered that problem with Entourage.
Here was one of the KB's that talks about one way this can happen:

Here are two more links that should help.

List of links to KB's on MS's site relating to exchange and entourage:

Is there any way for me to see what all these GB of info are that have come into the store are?  I mean it jumped 10GB in a day.
You could try and turn up logging and see if you find anything.  The article on troubleshooting the transaction log growth would be able to provide the most help.  Most likely though it really isnt data coming into the server from external sources, rather exchange itself just creating garbage data.

I really need to find out where all that extra data came from so I can clean it out.  My IS grew by a lot and now there isn't much room.
