I am looking to upgrade my Exchange Srver 2003 to 2007 and have a couple questions. We have only about 40 users but there are so many hoarders on my system that delete nothing.

1. Is there a way to effectively have my users delete their stuff and then compress the dB.
2. Are there any hiccups that I should lookout for?

what i meant is that let them delete as much as possible by deleting if you want but reducing the size of the edb is worthless you are moving to a new one anyway

You need to run offline defrag to decrease the size of the database.
Force mailbox limits
You can run receipient policies to clean up the mailboxes.

Once you move the mailboxes to exchange 2007 you should see a decrease in the database size.
