    You might want to be care in doing this. This one mailbox could then completely fill up the harddrive it is stored on, or make the information store grow too large and cause exchange some discomfort. You can set the limit very high on this mailbox so it appears to be unlimited to the user, but you want to protect the server from being harmed if the mailbox grows out of control.
