IMAP storage issue

One of our customer has configured his Exchange account through IMAP. 
Now is the problem that his imap account on the pc says that there is 9.92 GB data , but in our server this is 9.26 GB 
So IMAP says to have more then our server, do you know how this is posssible and why it does not sync with the exchange server?

The OST database and IMAP mailbox are different formats and save things differently

Nope, Shaun. Outlook uses local OST cache for IMAP mailboxes.

If you prefer, the online mailbox and the OST are different formats
