Reference the instructions for changing it - that will also tell you how large the limit is currently.

You could restart the Microsoft Information Store Service. Go to the event viewer, application log, look for event id 1216. In the details the current and maximum size are shown.

Of course there are other ways also, fi in the registry.

I found the answer in the log files where the Exchange server starts up on boot up. Thanks for the advice. It's at 75 GB.
