After a long night I find myself back for assistance. Long story short...a couple of days ago the priv1.edb on an Exchange 2003 SBS server (all latest sp's) started growing rapidly. I seem to have gotten the growing to stop by (not sure which was the culprit) deleting a botched Blackberry rule and disabling circular logging (don't ask why the client had it enabled because I'm not sure). total size of all mailboxes is less than 20GB. However, after doing an offline defrag last night my priv1.edb is still almost 65GB. Below is an excerpt from eseutil /ms. I'm curious as to how to delete these "long values> in section 1-23, as I think they are my problem. Much appreciation for your assistance.
