Hi Guys,

We have one user on our in Exchange config, who's Outlook is reporting:
"you have exceeded the size limit of your mailbox"

The size of his OST file is sitting on 3.2GB
The actual mailbox size reported in Outlook is 2.4GB

The size limit for his mailbox in Exchange is 18GB.

I am not sure whether the Outlook standalone 2.0GB limit applies to OST (Exchange config) also?

Hi there,

Can you confirm that the limit is indeed 18 GB? Don't forget you've got the storage-quota's on the MB-database and you've got individual storage quota's.

If you have specified an 18GB limit then this will override the store configuration so that shuoldn't be a problem.

When did you set the 18GB limit? How long ago?  Sometimes it can take a few hours for this change to be updated, restarting the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service will speed this up.

I confirmed:
- Server config, Mailbox, FSG, Mailbox DB, Limits, all 3 storage limits on 18 991 680 KB
- Recipient config, mailbox, mailbox properties, mailbox settings, storage quotes, all 3 limits set to 18 000 000 KB
* I took off the tick for the mailbox to use database defaults

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

The limit was only set about 1 hour ago?
Should I restart Exchange?
