A few months ago I had an issue with Exchange 5.5 and called Microsoft for
help.  I had two users whose mailboxes were 2.3Gs.  Microsoft told not to
let any mailbox go above 2Gs. 

I haven't seen any documentation about this but if it comes from them I'd
believe it.  I immediately force my users to archive.

I do not think there is a limit on how big a users mailbox can get, but I
for one would not let a users mailbox get to 3Gb in size, I think you should
look at using the Mailbox Cleanup tool to reduce the size and then set a
mailbox limit if possible.

Just my thoughts :-)

        Hello Everybody.

        Does anybody know which is the biggest size a mailbox in a Exchange
Server 5.5 can support? I mean, a user in my company has 3Gb in his mailbox.
He doesnt use pst files. I know pst files can support about 2Gbs or 16000
messages.

        I am a little affraid his mailbox or the entire priv.edb can be
corrupted soon.

        If someone knows some anything or an article about it, please let me
know.

        Thank You all !!

        Deniz
