In outlook, one of my mailbox's is showing 0 bytes for inbox data under the 'local data' but is showing 4gb under 'server data'. Where is the data found so that I can clean it out?

It could be that your local data is having trouble syncing with the server data because you are over size limit.  If you are the server administrator, try temporarily increasing your mailbox size limit above what it says the size of your 'server data' is.  Then connect open up Outlook again and see if it can sync and then check the folder size to see which folder the extra data is being stored in.  Hopefully it will let you delete it once you've found it.

turns out that one of the archived pst files was way behind in the sync. Once the pst caught up and was complete after the sync, both the local and server data tabs were showing the correct information. Thanks for the help.

I didn't have to change the size limits but rather wait out the pst sync/load.
