I would assume for performance reasons, you would want to set a limit on
the number of people in each mailbox store...a server can only handle so
much traffic.  Doesn't mean you can't add servers/stores/storage groups

Subject: [exchangelist] Information store limit

I was talking to someone today and they said that real world experience
that you shouldn't have more than 250 users in an information store
(Exchange 2003) for performance reasons. I have been under the
that the only real limits were purely based of the particular scenario
as disaster recovery expectations, disk IO, number of items in

So, is there any validity to the statement, or is it more scenario
What about with Exchange 2000?
