exchange will show the total size of the mailbox including all folders, files, tasks, calanders,contacts, etc, when check the folder size in outlook it show only the size of each folder, if you select proprites from outlook today then select folder size your results should be closer.

Thanks Gary for the suggestion and that's how I came about getting 3 MB on her mailbox. My problem is the inconsistency between the Outlook and Exchange Admin program. The folder size of the maibox showed 3 MB but in Exchange Admin Program for that account showed 25 MB but in actuality she doesn't have that much mail. She should only have 3 MB worth of it. My problem is how do I fix the mailbox because of the inconsistency between the mailbox size of the client to the one on Exchange Admin program?

If the user had 25MB at one time, but deleted most of it, viewing the mailbox size in Outlook will show the change. If you have the Exchange Administrator up and running on a workstation or server, you'll need to close it and restart it to update the change in mailbox size (or close the connection to the server and reconnect).

Deleted items may remain on the server for some time (depending on your settings) and occupy space.
