thanks for the response !
correct me if i'm wrong !
I agree on point that any changes to the database is
recorded in the transaction logs, but you will not get a
situation that a change to an exsisting page will not
include the complete change in transaction logs,, for
example i have composed an new message with an attachment
of 5mb file, i can see the changes in immdetiately
recodred in the transaction log ( i can see the increment
of log file) , but again if i do a change to this message
by just deleting the attachment i will not see a full 5mb
transation log , but it will only record the delete
record.. that way transaction log files will not be build,
but in my case transaction logs are build at a rate of 3
per minute i.e 15mb per minute...
Identifying the correct desktop is bit difficult for me ,
because of possibility that user might be connected from
any site with in 40 sites exchange sites...
i even tried knocking of mailbox permissions and also
limits, but both of them didn't work for me.
