Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To remove white space you still have to use <a href=”http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998249(EXCHG.80).aspx”>ESEUTIL</a> and this will require a downtime, sorry. Exchange 2007 does its own space reclamation, but it does not REMOVE the whitespace, it just re-uses it over time so nothing is lost. Were a lot of mailboxes moved recently? This would really be the only reason to do the ESEUTIL in my opinion.
