I have set mailbox limits of 15MB, changed the temp and tmp both to %systemroot%\temp verified permissions to the windows\temp directory, verified no outgoing messages in the queues, flushed the connector, set it to send HELO, all to no avail.  The files are still being created.  

Environment is SBS 2003 with exchange, EXchange SP2, fully patched.

Right now I am rebooting every few hours as the DST files are 225Mb each and fill up my partition rather quickly.  The files are being created aabout every 15 minutes.   I only have 16.3 GB of space available on the partition and the system slows down terribly.  I have 2 users that connect via terminal svcs from a remote office to do their work and this slows them down.

I have pulled out my hair, removed the A/V software, read every forum and applied everything I can think of.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
