The retention policy is ok but the main problem is how to reduce the database file of exchange.
Use eseutil (defragmentation tool for exchange database).
For further usage of this utility visit the following link....

Hope your problem solve with this

Firstly, Retention periods may be set up in the exchange so that mail is kept within Exchange for a period of time even thought the users may have deleted it. Check out to change the standard retention policy to suit.

Also using a tool to defragment the Exchange Database may be useful - Try PerfectDisk for Exchange. But remove as much other stuff as possible first as it needs space to work.

A couple of things... Exchange 5.5 has been replaced three times now and support ceased from Microsoft on 31st December 2003. NT Server support ceased a year later and is about to be replaced for the third time as well. I'd REALLY look at getting more up to date software on suitable hardware.

When deleting emails, remember any legal requirements you may have for retaining / archiving emails.

I have IE 8 and 15 updates installed on my PC, but use Google Chrome as my default browser and MSN Premium as my primary e-mail server. I am running out of space of my hard drive. Is it safe to uninstall...

uninstalling updated ie and reinstalling an old version will not give much space on your hard drive because ie progarm files is not to big, you have to delete other files that is unecessary to you to keep for and make sure can give you much bigger hdd space or else you have to replace or add another hdd with much higher capacity.
