Rtdb Attachments table size

Hello everyone. My first post to this

I’ve got RT 3.4.4 up and running on
Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 with Apache2, FastCGI, Postfix and the MySQL
backend. The process seems to be running properly except the
Attachments table in the RT mysql database is growing at a tremendous
rate. When totaling the individual sizes of the ticket attachments,
the Attachments table size seems way out of scale. At this point, the
first thirty tickets have increased the table size to 30 MB. I didn’t
make any changes to the RT database prior to the live implementation.
Has anyone had this problem? Any guidance is appreciated.

thanks - Greg
