I checked my clients sbs2003 server today and I saw a warning in the event viewer. Here is the message.:
Exchange store 'First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (MYMAILSRV)': The logical size of this database (the logical size equals the physical size of the .edb file and the .stm file minus the logical free space in each) is 72 GB. This database size is approaching the size limit of 75 GB.

If the logical database size exceeds the maximum size limit, it will be dismounted on a regular basis.

Now SBS2003 has a max size of 75GB can this be enlarged to a bigger size? If so, can someone provide me with a step by step procedure.

Firstly the logical size limit is 75GB the physical size could be 200GB as long as you had 125GB of free space.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

yes, you could create a scheduled task that mounts the database daily at 5:05 AM :)

Ok folks I need to rehash this question again. I had the users cleanup their emails and the mailboxes have shrank significantly but I'm still getting this message.:

Exchange store 'First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (MYMAIL)': The logical size of this database (the logical size equals the physical size of the .edb file and the .stm file minus the logical free space in each) is 72 GB. This database size is approaching the size limit of 75 GB.

If the logical database size exceeds the maximum size limit, it will be dismounted on a regular basis.

Why has the size not shrunk? Is there a step I'm missing here? Need help..
