My problem is with the size of the database and removing mailboxes to reduce the size. My company has been having problems with the size of the mailbox filling up the small harddrive we had available for database. We currently have 5gigs left and that takes a week to fill up. I have been backing up the log files and removing them in an effort to clear space while trying to educate employees on the issues we have from them holding onto EVERY email they ever received. One of the solution I thought would help me would be to remove all accounts that no longer work for the company. I deleted the accounts and made sure the mailboxes were in the disconnected folder in the EMC. Well I check today after the 30 day period and they were gone. However no additional space has freed up. I should have an additional 15 gigs space. How do I make sure those mailboxes are gone and recover the lost memory?
