We have multiple Unity servers that are a little low on disk space but would like to start using the public distribution list within Unity. Does anyone know if Unity stores the v-mails as one file on the Unity server or does it make a copy in each subscriber?s database? I know Exchange uses single-instance storage to store one copy of a message routed to multiple recipients, just not sure if Unity works the same way.

Yes, it does the same as Exchange because it is Exchange. Unity does not store a copy of the wav file in SQL, but in the Public Distro AD user account in Exchange. Exchange be default only keeps one copy of that wav file in it's database and has pointers to it if other users have the same copy. (keeps the Priv and Pub databases smaller and more effcient)
Have a look at this recent thread that addresses this question. The answer is from Unity Master Jeff Lindborg;
Hope this helps!
