we have DAG environment and 14 mailbox servers , each servers have 2 mailbox database.

one of the mailbox data base was almost full and had only 16% space left.

one of our engineers mentioned that he has a script which will hard delete or purge emails in deleted folder and thereby  space of the database will grow.

I am not aware of any script.

he did got space increase without creating any temp db . he didn't share with me though. I was curious if anybody knows .

did he increase the white space ?

You can do it without script also. Goto db properties and reduce the deleted item and deleted mailbox retention to 0. That will automatically remove deleted items.
