when did you clean up the mailbox ? typically the size should get back to "normal" when the background cleaning process starts.

did you restart the informaiton store ?

this is the bug I was referring to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891789 but it doesn't seem to apply in your case.

to clear your mind about the retention period, try to exmerge this mailbox if the pst is as big as the report of ESM then it is the retention period
