Very easy question here, just to confirm my thinking...is exchange that is bundled with sbs2003 a standard version?  are you only allowed to have 1 mailbox store? My users are pushing the 16GB "limit" and I'm not able to create an additional mailbox store error - c1034a7a

here are some clips from my "Exchange Server Setup Log"

[21:59:42] Setup configuration information: -- ID:62227 --
[21:59:42] This is a(n) Standard version of Microsoft Exchange Server -- ID:62232 --
[21:59:42] This is not an evaluation copy of Microsoft Exchange Server; it will not expire -- ID:62234 --

---this next comes at the end of the file...
[15:19:51] Setup configuration information: -- ID:62227 --
[15:19:51] This is a(n) unknown version of Microsoft Exchange Server -- ID:62232 --
[15:19:51] This is not an evaluation copy of Microsoft Exchange Server; it will not expire -- ID:62234 --


Thanks

Yes, SBS comes bundled with the standard edition of Exchange, and yes it's limited to one mailbox store.

Here's the old Microsoft link on the subject of Exchange:

So, what your saying is that I'm bound by the 16 GB limit...?

Yes you are :)
There is a patch which can temporarily allow you to increase it to 17GB, but it will be reseted on a next reboot.
Apply some mailbox policy to keep the mailbox size down, before it's too late. (server down).

Unfortunately yes; unless you go through the (very) expensive upgrade option and buy and upgrade to Exchange Enterprise.

The only other option that comes to mind is clear down some of the current content of your server - far from ideal though.

Sorry.
