That is not true.

There actually is a 2GB limit on an individual mailbox in Exchange 2003.
To change that, you have to use ADSIEDIT and edit the values of
mDB-StorageQuota, mDBOverQuotaLimit and mDBOverHardQuota properties for
that mailbox. 

Setting the mailbox to have no limit in ADUC will not work. As soon as
the mailbox reaches 2,097,151 KB, you will not be able to send or
receive.

Ok,Ok

It was early and I just replied quickly.

My point was that in theory, you could have a 15Gb mailbox in the 16Gb
store - how slow would that be!
Also, the pst files I have used in the past start to deteriorate over
about 700Mb - maybe my workstations need upgrading!

The way I think of it is 'email is a communication mechanism, not a
storage mechanism'

Now I have finally got this over to my users, my life is so much easier!

Actually, it is a 16GB limit for the information store in Exchange
standard, which is greatly increased with Exchange 2000 SP4 and the
forthcoming Exchange 2003 SP2.

Yes, the 2 GB limit is for PST files. However, even if Outlook 2003
allows PST files greater than 2 GB, why would anyone want one. Depending
on the number of folders and messages, PST files over 1 GB can have
performance issues.

I tell all my clients it is best to keep PST files not much over 1 GB,
and if needed create additional PST files.
