We have an Exchange 2003 server and our users use Outlook 2003 and a user is getting an error message stating that "The message store has reached its maximum size: Error 0x8004060C."  We do not limit our mailbox sizes and this user does not even have the largest mailbox on the Exchange server.  This message will come up in the users Outbox when they are not even sending or receiving.  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like this one.  http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=304863.  Local issue with PST file being too big by the look of it -- they used to just grow beyond 2Gb then stop working altogether!

Does his PST or OST file hit the 2Gb mark though... just out of interest.  If not maybe you have got some restrictions on there you didn't know about as miloudi suggests?

As RPPreacher says you might be better off getting this moved to the Exchange or Outlook TA's.

Guess it was a big or corrupt OST as suggested then - the link I added above linked to documents on how to compact the OSt which may have been another option.  Anyway you've solved the problem, you know the score -- accept the answer that helped, use the split points link to split them or apply to Community Support to get it deleted.  I note you have given a C grade or too, here is the grading guidelines should you want them:

Well if it was me asking the question I'd split the points across the people who had offeref suggestions...

So was the PST or OST around 2Gb in the old profile?  If so you will find I offered that solution and within the links are described how to fix it by compacting etc.

Dragon-it, thanks for the help.  The OST and PST was around 1.7 and tried your link that you suggested and it stated to install the latest office Office XP service pack which was already on there and compacting did not work.  A new OST seemed to solve the issue with a new PST but do appreciate the help.  Probably should have split the points instead closing.  Let's see if we still can.  To my knowledge I think I have only given a C as a grade once and I am sure that was an extreme case as I remember there was one instance.  I generally give A's or at least that is what it seems like so I am up on the grading.
