I'd like to edit the email alert settings in exchange 2007 that alerts me when a database has reached a certain limit.

At the moment i keep getting an alert for 40GB and i've increased the databse limit from default 60GB to 150GB and would like to know how to edit the email alerts so i am notified when the databse reaches the limit of 120GB.

    In ESM drill down to your server then right click your exchange store and choose properties. In the limits tab change > issue warning at (KB). Check mark issue warning with a value of 122880.

    Thanks for your reply but i've already tried this and i still get an email stating 'the mail store size exeedsRelatedinformation: The mail store[Mailbox Database] size exeeds 40 GB(s), the time interval of notification is 1 hr(s)'

    I don't have SP1 installed but i didn't think that would have made a difference in this situation, or does it?

    Thanks for all your help.

    I finally managed to resolve the issue.
    The mailbox size limit email alert was being sent from Trend Micro Scanmail for MS exchange not MS exchange 2007.
