Exchange 2007 Mailbox Server reports wrong mailbox size

I have a problem where my exchange 2007 server is reporting my mailbox to be 100 meg more than it actually is. I am using Outlook 2007 SP1 in cached mode, if that makes any difference.

The exchange server is SP1 too.

Any help appreciated

Hi,
Your Size being shown by Exchange Report also includes the deleted items that are retained for you (default limit of 14 days). These deleted items have been removed from Deleted Items Folder in Outlook so you will not come to know.
This is only one factor, there are other factors too involved. Outlook Folder size is generally not a fool proof method to get Mailbox Size
Hope this clarifies your query....a good reading would be::::http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb738147(EXCHG.80).aspx
