What counts towards the mail store size limit of 75GB when retention deleted items default of 7 days is increased?
Posted on 2010-01-06
We currently have a Exchange 2003 Standard. Our mail store is slowly creeping up to the 75G limit, currently at 61GB. I'd like to instruct our users to delete their old emails to bring down the current 61GB of email storage, however, we've changed the default retention setting on the exchange server for deleted items to 60 days. My question is, "Where is the data for the deleted items stored once a user deleted from their deleted items in the Outlook GUI?", "Will these retention deleted items count towards the 75GB limit for the mail store?"
