    Default ZDB file size

    Hi everybody, we have noticed a strange behavior of the zdb files of our users. Currently the mailbox size limit is 1GB for every user, but some of them have a .zdb file in their Outlook profile that is over 9GB. Is it normal? And is there a way to reduce its size?

    When outlook deletes a message it still retains a copy of it in the pst/zdb file until you compact it.

    Open up the account through File --> Account Settings --> Zimbra account, ZDB Configuration tab and Compact ZDB. For a file that large it'll take a looong time!
