I am an Exchange Admkn and manage Exchange

server 2003 having one mailbox store and one

public folder store. A free disk space warning

threshold is configured for the Exchange Sever.

However , when the amount of free disk space is

below the threshold, the helpdesk mailbox does

not receive an email notifiction. What should

I do?

a. Should I Configure the helpdesk's email address as the

non delivery report (NDR) address on the SMTP

virtual server

b. Should I Configure the server's mailbox management

process to send summary reports to the help

desk.

c. However I think I should Configure an email notification to occur when

free disk space is in a warning state

d, There also is a solution if I Configure the warning message intervals on

the mailbox store and the public folder store to

use a custom shedule that allows notification

24/7

You're saying you're running low on physical disk space on the Exchange Server?

It happens usually, please also tell what all can I do to make space other than clearing temp files and deleted data unused long than 120 days to clear automatically.

What is the size of the C: drive?

Do you have Mailbox Quotas enforced?

Are you doing any type of archiving?

How many mailboxes?  That seems like a reasonable setup so w/150MB quotas I would think 150GB is large enough.  

Do you have anything else installed?

Is your Exchange server scheduled to do routine database cleanups to free up the unused space?

You have SQL installed on the same server as Exchange?  I would have that on a totally separate box if possible.

I think you should look at circular logging.  If you have a solid backup rotation in place, circular logging would be beneficial in your situation.  It'll keep the disk space in check for you.

Open the Exchange System Administrator, locate the Servers Icon.

Drill down to the Storage Group where you want to enable circular logging.  (Note Storage GROUP not Store...

Right-click (The Storage Group), and select Properties.

On the General tab, tick Enable circular logging, and then click Yes.
