When I do a archive restore to a users archive folder in outlook 2003  I some how am triggering the users mailbox quota.

An example I setup a new PC add an existing user connect the users outlook to the exchange server I go in and restore there archived data to the archive folders (they want to view it at all times)after the restore they can't get e-mail because they have reached the quota.Under there old PC they are setup the same way with no trouble.

The archive.pst is on there local drive I thought archive folders don't effect your mailbox quota limits on the exchange server.

What is the proper way to do this?

The archive.pst should not count against your mailbox quota.

You say you are 'restoring' the archive.....how so? If you do an import, or something along those lines, then the mail is copied from the .pst back into the mailbox on the server and will certainly count against the quota.

Easiest way for the end-user to access old mail archives is simply go to 'File' | 'Open' | 'Outlook Data File' | then browse to the .pst....this will make the archive available in the folder tree on the left, but not count against the storage quota.
