In exchange, the only way to shrink the size of the mail store was to do an offline defrag. Even if you deleted half the emails your server contained - it would be the same size until you did the offline defrag. The database never shrank...
How does this work in Zimbra? If I have 10g of emails on my server, and delete half of them - does the total size go down? Or do I have to run some kind of utility?
The reason I am asking is that backups are taking longer, and wondering if older emails were deleted/removed - if the size of the backups would go down.
Thanks for any and all help on this,
