Hi All,

I have a client with an exchange mail store and the Mailbox Manager keeps reporting vastly different figures, I have copied the last 2 days reports.

The mail store is on Exch 2000 and is tipping over the 16GB area, I get the users to archive what they can, backup the mailstore and run an offline defrag quite often so these messages are a little confusing.

As you can see on the 14th when the mail store was reporting "Size of messages that would be moved or deleted:  1.76 MB",
on the eve of the 14th I did an offline defrag but the report today (15th) is "Size of messages that would be moved or deleted:  3857.57 MB"

I am missing something here any one have a clue?

Nope. error 9307 is not present in the event logs.

I will try a repair of the DB and then a defrag, see if that is the problem
