Urgent - increase mailbox size for CIO

Hi

Our CIO has reached his send quota in Exchange 2007 of 500MB.

I've gone into the EMC and increased this to 1GB.

How long will this change take to take effect? Is it immediate?

Also, we have Exchange servers around the globe. I made the change on his home Exchange server in London, but would it have made a difference if I had made it in Japan? Surely not because mailbox quota is not an AD attribute but an Exchange one?

You will need to restart the information store service on the server the user is on to force the changes to kick in or worst case, restart the server otherwise the existing limits will still be in force.

How long will the server use the existing limits for if I don't restart the IS?
