I have an Windows 2003 server with Exchange 2003 Standard server.  Both full updated service pack and all.

I get the event: 1216 telling me that my limit of 18 GB is exceeded (edb and stm file are  23 GB now)    I went on Micrososft website: to increase my size limit and did everything i was told to do.  I checked twice everything i did in the registry.

The change doesn't seem to work because every time i restart Exchange services i get the same Event in my Event Viewer...  

Enyone else got the same bug as I ?  If so please tell me how you fix it !!!
