We have a single Exchange 2003 standard server that it scheduled for replacement at the end of the month. We recently hit the maximum 75 Gb limit I set for the mailbox store. Is it possible to add a second storage group (i.e. another database) to split the database into 2 75 Gb stores or does this require the enterprise version? Is there a FAQ somewhere that describes this?

You can add a new DB. Each DB has a maximum of 75GB and there is a maximum of 5 DBs. This includes Public Folders.

Hope this helps.

With Exchange 2003 Standard, you can only have two databases - 1 Public Folders and 1 Database.  If you have hit the 75Gb limit - you can only archive mail to reduce the size of the store or upgrade to Exchange 2007 / 2010 which doesn't have the 75Gb limit issues.

That's it - no other options.

Alan is correct. I just answered a question on 2007 and mixed the two.
