Hi Lloyd
Suggest you set a lowish limit to start using store policy, and take it
from there. We have a couple of "big" users but even though they are
mega important, they still get the standard spiel about saving
attachments outside of mailbox, and setting up/configuring archiving. In
addition to ensure they try to use folders for storage, and do not store
mail they are unlikely to need to access - commonsense really.

Subject: [exchangelist] Mailbox Sizes

Are there any accepted best practices out there for the limits of
Mailboxes sizes.
Most of our users have 100-200 MB mailboxes. I have a couple of users
who claim to need 1-2 GB mailboxes. Is there any technological down side
to allowing this size mail box. In addition it would seem that we will
need to upgrade to the enterprise version of exchange 2003 to
accommodate this (our total mail store size would be too close to 16GB
for comfort). Are there any issues associated with the switch to
enterprise 2003
