The theoretical limit for a Mailbox in 2007 is substantially higher.

Your limit may currently be set where you don't want it.

So 2GB is not the limit any longer, you can up the user limit to 4gb with out any major issues.

If you would have read the article, you would understand that you are actually turning off the mailbox size limits and then applying the new limits.So, 2GB is still applicable. Also, on legacy servers (E2k and E2k3) there were ways and means to avoid the 2GB setting which was hard coded.

I meant turning off "use mailbox store size limit" restriction on the mailbox - using the first link.

You might be getting confused with the limitations of the older PST / OST files in Outlook, which were limited to 2GB because any larger would cause them to become corrupted.

In Outlook / Exchange 2007 connected to an Exchange Server the limit on mailbox size is theoretically the capacity of the hard disk volume on which the Exchange databases are located. This is true in Exchange 2003 Enterprise too, and in 2003 Standard with SP2, there is a limit of 75GB.

I find you will notice best performance if the Inbox folder is kept below around 1000 items; at that many items, they should be organised into at least some form of filing system anyway.
