Mailbox store and Public folder store size in SBS2003 with exchange sp2

Hi,

I am running Small buisness server 2003 SP1 with exchange service pack2. I have noticed a couple of slightly worrying event log entries. One says First storagegroup\mailbox store (server name) has 106mb left after online defrag has terminated. This is worrying as I only have 10 users most of whom use pst files so the store should be nowhere near 16gb. The second log refersa to the Public store and says it only has 1mb free! I am rather confused as the information store totals around 1gb and all users have a 1gb limit on their mailboxes so why am I getting these messages and what can I do to remedy the situation? Any help greatly received!

I am also getting an 8026 ExchangeAL error  saying the LDAP bind was unsuccessful on servername.servername.local for distinguished name. Directory returned error (0x55) timeout. Should I be worried about this? It's only occurred once (6am this morning)

Hi nicktaylor1309,

That is a misleading event, what it means is that you have 106MB FREE SPACE in the database - not you have 106MB LEFT

When you delete something, exchange removes it from the database and it becomes whitespace - this event is telling you how much white space you have.

Also, with SP2 for exchange, the default is 18GB, not 16 (and can be lifted to 75GB if you so desire)

This may explain it better -> http://www.amset.info/exchange/event1221.asp

As for 8026, you would get that when you restart the server (it happens with SBS, being the exchange server and a DC)

Hope that helps,
