I have a problem, my exchange storage limit has reached its mailbox limit, i have deleted 2 mailboxes and purged them. But when i try to create a new mailbox it says "This storage group already contains the maximum number of stores allowed".

What do i need to do to update the storage group? So it can see that there are 2 spaces for new mailbox.

Thank you

its not the size that is causing the problem its the number of mailboxes inside the storage group.

In the database properties look at deletion settings, "keep deelte mailboxes for (days)"
by the way, Are you able to create a new storage group?

The deleted mailboxes stay for 30 days as default, but if you purge them it doesnt matter becasue there is no way to recover it. So there must be a tool that updates the storage group so it can see that there are 2 spaces for new accounts :(

I been told that after the database is backup at the end of the night, it will purge the accounts fully, so i am going to wait till tomorrow to it. But it would be great to have a tool to this straight away.
