Set mailbox quota on Exchange 2003, Outlook does not get new setting
Posted on 2009-02-23
I had to increase a users' quota because he ran out of space. (don't even go there, i know, but this guy gets as much space as he needs)
Usually when I change the value, it instantly updates the Outlook client and he can send mail again.
This time it does not. When trying to send a mail, it says he is over the limit, and it shows his old limit.
I should also say that I have to do this manually through ADSIEdit.msc because its above the 2GB limit that the GUI imposes. I have done this a lot though, so this is not an issue, i just edit the 3 quota settings. (mDBStorageQuota, mDBOverQuotaLimit, and mDBOverHardQuotaLimit)
The highest value is 2.8GB (2800000).
I have replicated all domain controllers in my domain just to be on the safe side. Did not help.
Anyone have any ideas?
