Every recipient would have a copy of the document in their mailbox... so 100 is your answer.

The best way to do something like this is to create a public folder and use it to store the document(s), word, excel, etc. One copy is in it and everyonewith rights can access it.

Hmmmm.... I was under the impression that the single-instance storage in Exchange applied to attachments as well as messages.
I'll have to check on that.

As far as the second question, you can use the Exmerge utility to purge any particular message from the Information Store and with it will go the attachments. More information on this utility can be found on Microsoft's TechNet site.

Exmerge.exe v3.71 will do the job, but only available by calling microsoft support admin. Is free of charge.

1 copy of the doc would sit on the server because exchange uses single instance storage so a single copy of the message is stored in the Private Information Store datatbase with pointers to the 100 users who should receive the message.
