Did you compact a local copy, or the server copy?

Select the database properties of the database on the server (in R7, that's the File menu > Database > Properties) then click the "i" tab. What size is shown?

Hi there ,,,

Just please have the time to do the following :
- Go to all documents and delete all the unwanted emails ( check their sizes )
-  Archive your emails ...

-Then compact your emails

Best Wishes

And what is the amount of Qouta set for your mailbox ??   What is the standard of the Qouta set for all users in your Company ? Is there any way to remove this Qouta from you Mailbox for some time ( A day e.g. ) then put it back next day .

Your numbers seem to have been lost in translation. :)

If your quota is 1 Gig, and your mailbox is 600mb, then your problem is resolved.

If your problem has not been resolved, then please clarify.
