Hello,

I was wondering if someone knows where I could find the application or snapin that is used to monitor and/or restrict mailbox storage sizes for Groupwise 6.5.

Thanks,
Mike

This functionality is built-on to GroupWise v6.5 (and in fact has been part of GroupWise since at least v5.0).

You can set mailbox size limits n a per-user, per-Post Office and/or per-Domain basis. Simply open up a GroupWise-enabled ConsoleOne, browse to the level of the GroupWise System at which you want to enforce the restrictions, and right-click on the user, Post Office or Domain. I don't have a GroupWise-enabled ConsoleOne handy, but in one of the resultabnt tabs there are Restrictions you can set. Mailbox size limits are one possible restriction.

Monitoring this can be done using the GWCHECK.EXE tool or the equivalent functionality in ConsoleOne.

This is all documented in the GroupWise documentation, which is freely available for perusal and/or download on Novell's extensive support website. The GroupWise v6.5 documentation is at --> http://www.novell.com/documentation/gw65/index.html

In particular, I suggest you read the Administration Guide, optionally available in PDF at --> http://www.novell.com/documentation/gw65/pdfdoc/gw65_admin/gw65_admin.pdf

To extend PsiCop´s answer, in a GroupWise-enabled ConsoleOne you right click on the user, then GroupWise Utilities -> Client Options -> send -> Disk Space Mgmt -> and there you enable the User Limits...here it ist 500MB, 90% Warning threshold and Maximum send message 1000KB.
