    I have a SQL 2005 transaction replication setup with a dedicated distributor. The Distribution database has grown to over 3 GB in just a few days. This seems unusual.....what job removes outdated transactions from this database?

    I found it....the retention period for keeping replicated transactions is specified in the Distribution Clean-Up Job.
    Thanks for your help!
