i would like to start setting delivery restrictions for our users who are not keeping their e-mail storage box at a manageable level.  i tried testing the restrictions on myself by giving myself a 50KB limit which would prevent me from sending or recieving e-mail but i was still able to do both.  do i have to look at a setting on the exchange server also and not just adjust my user settings.

thanks

There are several different settings you need to look at, and you'd best wait for Active Directory to sync or else force it.

Are you talking about delivery restrictions or quotas?  50KB is actually a fairly decent size message without attachments.  Many messages are below 10KB.

Quotas set the maximum size of a mailbox.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Sorry, that doesn't talk about per-user quotas.  I'll get back to you in a moment when I've checked...

I believe it is configured per-user in Active Directory Users & Computers.

No, I'm not sure that you can do per-user quotas without moving users to different mailbox stores, so that a different policy can be applied.

Also, you have to ensure that the mailbox manager is enabled.

Found a final comment:

Mailbox size quotas in Exchange 2007 work just like they do in Exchange 2003 -- there are individual quota settings on each mailbox (IssueWarningQuota, ProhibitSendQuota, and ProhibitSendReceiveQuota) which are matched to the same settings available on the mailbox database holding the mailbox. There's a boolean "UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults" available on the mailbox to determine whether the mailbox database quota settings are used, or whether the mailbox quota settings are used. This is identical in both Exchange 2003 and in Exchange 2007.

So, if you are using 2003 or 2007, then you can have per user quotas and it will be set in AD U&C, but you will definitely need the mailbox manager process running.
