Event Viewer warning

Hello, yesterday I recieved this warniing in the Event Viewer on the exchange server: Exchange store 'First Storage Group\Mailbox Store*******'. The current physical size of this database (the .edb file and the .stm file) is 23GB. This database has exceeded the size limit of 18GB. However, the logical free space in this database has not yet been evaluated. Therefore, it is possible that this database contains enough free space to bring its logical size below the manimum size limit. If the logical database size exceeds the maximum size limit, it will be dismounted on a regular basis...

What does it mean and how do I prevent the database to exceed size limit? Thanks

I assume you are running Exchange 2003 Standard or SBS 2003 w/ Exchange. If so, then you are definitely exceeding the maximum size of the Information Store. If you have Exchange SP2 installed, you can increase the store size to 73GB (the max was increased with SP2).

If you do not have SP2 yet, I would highly recommend installing it.

Yes! I'm using SBS 2003 SP2 w/exchange, I've made the necessary modifications in the registry and I think we are good to go! Thank you very much for the information!
