Exchange 2007 Database

Our staff use Outlook 2003 in cached mode. While deleted files from their systems it sometimes appears as though this process is never translated on the server side to increased space availability. Is their work in vaine? Once the Exchange database has been increased in size to accomodate growth does it ever contract?
1 Solution
the only time the size of the DB reduces is if you run an offline degrag.

shut down the store you want to work on, and
run eseutil /d  path to the edb file.

note: you must have enough free disk space for two copies of the database, or this will fail.

conventional wizdom is offline defrag is not worth it because new email will quickly take up the white space in the db.

Unfortunately, that's what I thought the answer would be.
