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.

Maybe you need some hard disk space and Skype requires at least 256 MB of RAM and 18 MB of free hard-disk space for installation files. Try to delete some of your files that are not necessary especially images. To find out how much free disk space is on your computer:

  • Open your "My Computer" folder by clicking the icon on your desktop. If you do not have a shortcut on your desktop, open your "Start" menu and right-click on the "My Computer" icon.

  • 2 Right-click on your hard drive icon. Generally, the hard drive is named the C: drive. Select the "Properties" option from the drop-down menu.

  • 3 Read the pie chart and accompanying information to determine how much free disk space your hard drive has. Windows operating systems use blue to indicate how much disk space you are using and purple to depict how much free space is available.

  • If you have enough space, try to download SKYPE

    If this would help you please don't forget to give rating.

    Thank you for using FixYa. : )

    After the installation of Windows 2003 Server Enteprise Edition, the full capacity of my hard disks is not visible. What do I do to see the total capacity of my disks

    this happens when you forget to allocate all the space to partition on your drive, now what you can do is
    start > run > type in without quotes "compmgmt.msc" > ok > Disk management > see on the right hand side if all the space is allocated to the partitions
    if there is free space available you can right click on the free space and create a new partition.
