I have an HP server with 135 GB of space for my mail server and I am running out of room. The directory C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr alone is taking up 122 GB.

1. My exchange mail files are huge - they grew large months ago and now that we really have about 20GB of mail stored they have never shrunk. I assume the only way to get the files back to smaller sizes is to run an offline defrag of the mailbox?
2. There are a bunch of log files in C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA - Can I just delete all those? They are named E0018409.log and all are 5,120KB. Also can I stop the mail server from creating those?
3. The C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\POS-SBS.log is full of files, can I delete all those and have the mail server stop creating them? They are named 20091217.log and some are as big as 50 MB.
