Best Practice Exchange 2003 mailbox size limit?
Posted on 2010-08-26
I have a client running Exchange 2003 SP2 Standard and their database size is current;y 25GGB. Plenty of space to grow. However, I have 1 user who is taking up about half of that space - her mailbox is 11GB currently. She stores all of the time cards (scanned images and pdf/xls docs) in her mailbox and can't really get rid of them. Their currenty backup solution is within 3GB of it's capacity limit so I can't really archive out her email.
My question is this: Is there any potential problem with her mailbox being that size? To clarify - I know it's not a problem because growth wise, they won't reach their 75GB Information Store capacity anytime soon but could the fact that her mailbox is so large, it could cause issues if I had to do a restore or some sort of repair?
I'm just trying to be proactive with this.
