I cannot find a definitive answer to this question and would really like to know as I'm wondering if Exchange 2007 standard holds the same "standards" as Exchange 2003 standard version.  I personally experienced Exchange 2003 standard pretty much demanding that the company I worked for go upgrade to Exchange 2003 Enterprise due to the email store size which was just a tiny bit over 70GB. Long story, shorter... it was a 3 day ordeal to upgrade to enterprise which was a MUST to make it to where booting the exchange server daily at 4:30am became a thing of the past.  Ugh.
SO.. anyone happen to know this maximum size limitations that have been set for the Exchange 2007 Standard version??  Thanks lots guys!

Well you are. But that's ok, really - I understand the need for documentary evidence.

MS don't recommend letting your databases get over 100gb though, hence the reason exchange 2010 supports 100 databases

Thanks for the points.

Just as a separate point - you will often get more/faster responses if you're a bit more generous with them. Most of the techs on here will walk right past one worth 25 as not worth their time and energy.

Good luck going forwards.

I realize this but seeing how quickly you were able to answer it as I knew someone would (maybe not as quickly as you did of course <wink>)  I figured 25 was good enough for the not so touch answer needed... I do understand your position however and will do next time, promise.  Take care and thanks again.

No points for me boo hoo!  ;-(

I am not bothered about it because the question was only worth 25 points anyway. Not that I noticed...

To be fair, the question was very specific and I answered it, with links and a graphic to back it up. Yours was a quick comment with no such backup ;-)

But...I didn't notice the paltry amount of points either and trutfully had I done so I wouldn't have spent time finding the answer...indeed the more I think, the more I think 25 points is just rude and insulting.

Hey ho you live and learn.
