Exchange 2000 Mailbox Size limitations.

Hello All,
I'm currently in the process of migrating one of our branch offices from their Exchange 5.5 server to our Exchange 2000 server and was just wondering if anyone has run into any mailbox size limitations with 2000 yet. I've had users with 1GB mailboxes which still worked fine, but wanted to know if anyone out there has found a limit. These users are used to having big mailboxes, so I wanted to give them a fairly large limit.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
-Jim

Well, if you have exchange 2000 Std, the limit is on the mailbox store.. The limit is 16GB, and you can push it up to 17 if you need to.... but not more.

I have a user wich is a VP, and doesnt want to be bothered about bringing the size of his mailbox down.. he is at 1.7 GB right now, with no problem at all..

Yan,
That's good to know...I was probably going to give them all between 750MB-1GB max. I've never seen a mailbox over a gig, so that size made me a bit nervous.
Thanks for the quick response, much appreciated.

Don'T forget that the max size for the store is 16GB.. Limit the size of attachments to a maximum of your choice, it will prevent your users of sending a 40MB movie to 20 people, and after this, forget it and keep it in his sent items..

We use Exchange 2000 Enterprise, so there's no limit. We already have a 65GB information store...
I should look into limiting attachments though, we currently don't do that. Good call.
