Delete a bunch of stuff, empty the trash and then perform maintenance. That's pretty much what you can accomplish via the normal GoldMine interface.

There are frequently space-bandits hidden away within mailbox files: mail that takes up a LOT more room than it seems like it should because the HTML is terrible, outgoing mail blasts that were queued up and never went, outgoing mail blasts that DID go but are unnecessarily stored in history, lots and lots of spam, etc.

Finding and shooting those bandits can be difficult without resorting to external tools/assistance. This is something I could help you out with on a fee basis, if you'd like. Just how long it would take or how much it would cost depends heavily on your specific situation. Contact me directly to explore this possibility.

Thanks. I'll have to be a lot more ruthless about deleting stuff. I'll let you know if we still need assistance.
