Hello,

I would like to be able to find a way to send myself an email of the Storage Limits that are set so I can see what is actually receive by end users that are configure to 'use mailbox store default'

So I would need an example of"
'Issue Warning at (KB)'
'Prohibit send at (KB)'
'Prohibit send and receive at (KB)'

I would like to be able to emails these notifications to me to ensure that the communication being sent out provides enough detail and also capture it for documentation.

Thanks

you can customize your size limit and try to fill your mailbox :)
else you can review this documentation to see the text sent:

else google images "exchange 2010 message quota"

I believe that there was some customization performed to the actual message end users/owners receive.
Is there a powershell command that will tell Exchange to send me the email the user receives without me resetting my mailbox storage limits?

So I'm hoping to accomplish 2 goals here:
1. Ability to run a report or command to get what our default storage limits are?
(I can just use EMC and check the Server Configuration-Mailbox.  Then I can get an understanding what the limits are set to)

2. I would like to receive an email example of the Limit Messages sent to me.
I don't want to reset my default limits to something manual so its a low settings causing me to get these alerts.  There must be a way to have exchange send them to me.  
Or must I use a Test Mailbox and reset the storage limits to something that will spark these limit messages to be sent?

You cannot send you directly messages quota "just to see". Either you use a test mailbox with especially low limit, either you use your own mailbox (and you can lower your limits too).

Quotas limits can be set per database or per mailbox (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232173.aspx)
If you want to report Quotas for each database :
Get-MailboxDatabase | fl
Review set properties you want to see and Get-MailboxDatabase | Select Database,IssueWarningQuota ...

For mailbox it's the same
Get-Mailbox | select IssueWarningQuota .... and all others properties you want.
