you can try changing the deleted items retention limit on the mailbox store and also doing a defrag of the database
the combination of this should free up the space and limit its growth

Adding to above, open up a committed log and see what records are adding up. Like any server is relaying emails etc.

you can also use the exchange tools to check and see what mapi connections there are to the server it might not just be emails being sent but moved around and stored

ExMon is the tool to show some of those details
