Many organisations rely on local replicas.  Many of those same organisations also employ quotas to control mail file size.  In many cases the notes client doesn't remove indexes when compacting databases.  Hence with repeated compacts and some people having hundreds of folders the index grows to a point where with a quota the user finds it difficult to manage their mail file.  Users don't understand compact tasks with -D extensions.  Should the client have this functionality built into the compact button?
