SBS 2003 / Exchange 2003. Server's mail store has reached 75GB and I have tried over and over to free up space. However, every night, the event log says there's only 11MB of free space. I have created a Recipient Policy to deleted Deleted Items older than zero days, and every night when the maintenance runs it reports just 11MB free space.
I have read numerous documents on how to do this, but am coming up empty.
I can see by the total size of the users' mailboxes that I should have about 15GB free space, but can't get the stingy Exchange mail store to return it to me.
I thought I would try using the ESEUTIL offline tool this weekend, but it seems to me that this process should run online nightly.
What am I missing?
