Exchange 2003 Limitations

I am beginning the process of enforcing email retention and compliance.

Besides the additional stubbing and deduplication technologies available (Barracuda, Iron Mountain, etc), I'd like to know the limitations of Exchange 2003.

Given unlimited storage space, how many "online" message items can Outlook 2003 / Exchange 2003 accomodate?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I believe the cap is something like 75gb, but you can edit the registry to allow more.

there is no definitive number so the question cannot be answered with a specific number of messages
the best answer that can be given is the storage limitations
a mailbox can hold as many messages as long as the database does not reach the maximum size
therefore the answers provided are correct

Whatever.

I asked how how many emails.

All answers dealt with physical size of database until I got aggrivated and attempted to withdraw the question.

Award the points however you see fit ... they were not earned ... much in the same fashion that just showing up in class doesn't earn you a grade for the class ... or maybe it does these days.
