Hi All,

I have a problem. A user receives a limit warning from Exchange 2003. I do not want this warning, however when I look at the users limits, they are all blank, so on the user in AD there is no limit. In Exchange System Mananger the default is also blank.

What triggers this warning? How can I disable that?

Thankx!

Hi Loftbug,

ok, that works, but that creates another problem. Although the messages disappear, the limits still stand. So at the time that a prohibit send / receive occus we will not be notified. We need to kill the actual limits.

There are two limits set - the default is the store limit and if that is not used, then the personal limit set in ADUC applies.

As you have stated that the ADUC is blank, this means that the default store limit will be in force.

If you want to have no limit - set the user to not use the Default Store limit in ADUC and then set the limits to empty.

Please see the JPGs. No limits are set, but still a warning message appears.

Have you changed anything recently and have you rebooted the server since changing any settings?
