Hi all
I have deleted some mailboxes (old users) as our exchange 2003 server is
very low on disk space. I purged them in Exchange System Manager also.
The space was not freed up and have since noticed thet the options were
ticked to retain deleted email and mailboxes for 30 days.

Is there any way I can get the space back I need, without waiting the 30
days ?

thanks in advance for any advice
