We have 18 users and a 40 Gig exchange database and some of those users have 5 gig archive files!  Needless to say it's way too much information. I would like to see if they are keeping a/v files or zip attachments in their mailboxes. Is there a way to get a report of this?

MAPILab has a product that can get you that information as well http://www.mapilab.com/exchange/reports_exchange/

and I would also look at the Mailscape product http://www.enowconsulting.com/products-and-solutions/messaging-management/overview-0/

I would look at obtaining a DEMO from the one that appeals to you most
