We are using the mailbox full warning messages and are getting questions about how often it is being sent to the user. We are using Hub Transport and are checking the mailbox store daily at 11:00 AM.
Does the user recive the warning message each time an email comes in or should it be just once per day? Is there a way to change it to be just once per day?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

It's on the Limits Tab! It says Warning message interval. The problem is that if the prohibit send/receive interval is enabled, then they will get a warning every time they try to send or receive.

My apologies, I did have the Prohibit send and recieve checked. Will the warning message work according to the schedule if we check Prohibit Send ?

If you do this, they will have very little incentive to clean up their mailbox. You should educate your users about mailbox limits. If they are nearing it, they need to clean out their mailboxes and the warning messages will magically stop.

Also, remind them to set up autoarchiving to avoid this problem altogether.
