Exchange 2007 size limits

I presently run Exchange 2007 in the office. I would like to know what the maximum storage size can be set to. I have a partition in the server for 300Gb and 200 is still free. Small office and some users are close to limit and can't delete much. I enclosed a capture of limits on Database properties. (Newbe to Exchange!) Please let me know if you need any more captures for more detail.

According to the URL, it would be safe to say that I could increase the "Prohibit Send and Receive" to 16,000,000 and bump others accordingly?

You can have upto 16TB for your database size, but no one wants that.

You can have upto 200-250Gb without any issues. If you have only few users, create more databases and spread the users. It will be useful in a restore situation.

Hi
You might be better off not to set any limits if you have that much free space - just untick the boxes and montior the drive space.
The maximum limit is 2147483647 KB i.e 256GB which you might not want to set.

Both replies from Rajith & jfitton74 are great. Thank you. One last question. If a user would like to remove some emails from the system, would they be able to store to, let's say CD's to keep for "someday" emergency? If so, how would that be done? (helps to keep mailbox smaller and less to backup)

They would need to export the mails to a PST file.

Sounds too simple. Wasn't aware that Exchange would backup with PST like regular POP type account. OK ... thanks for the information
