Recently, I took an Exchange 2007 course and someone said if you have Exchange 2000 standard version with SP2, you can extend the IS beyond 16 gb.
Can some expert confirm this is true?
How do I find out I have SP2 or not?  I mean where to look?
Thanks in advance.

Hiya, actually you can increase the Store size by 1 GB to allow for you to clear it down - have a look here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813051

Cheers

Hi,

To find out the version of service pack for exchange,Navigate to the following location
  1. Open Exchange system manager
  2. Expand Administrative groups
  3. Expand first administrative groups
  4. Highlight the object servers in the left pane and towards the right pane we can find the verision,sp.edition,server name and type.

Thanks

Hi,
 
If you organisation dont want to invest in Exchange 2007 licence and want to continue with the existing setup you still have a workaround.
 
1) Ask users to move some old emails in local PST.
 
2) Let the online defragmentation complete.
 
3) After retention period setting you can run offline defrag and the size of the database will be compacted.
 
This is brief plan that you can follow in order to compact the size of the database :)
 
Regards,
Ashish Joshi

Hi,
 
With the information already provided by friends over here, you will need to take into consideration following facts too.
 
1. Exchange 2000 support period: Extended support will end on January 1, 2011.
 
2. Exchange 2003 support period: Mainsteam support is retiring on April 4, 2009 and extended support is retiring on April 8, 2014.
 
So you will have to plan the roadmap to next version of exchange with these dates in mind.
 
Regards..Anil
