I have a SBS2008.  PC users with Outlook 2003 with large mailboxes complains that they can no longer send or recieve mails due to mail quota exceeding.
When I go to the Windows SBS Console under USER PROPERTIES and E-MAIL the "Enforce the mailbox quotas" is turned off.
Whats wrong?

Using Exchange Management Console, under recipient configuration > Mailbox right click the user that's having the problem and select properties.

Under Mailbox Settings, what is set under Storage Quotas.

:-) not sure what you mean!
Nothing under USE MAILBOX DATABASE DEFAULTS is checked.

I believe in Outlook 2003 there is a max .pst file size of about 2GB. I believe it can be modified and here is the best microsoft article I can find:

I hope this helps. I ran into this issue a while back after running Outlook 2003 for some number of years and this article helped. The key is deciding how big to let the pst be.

Good luck!

that's because any changes you make to the quotas take up to 2 hours to take effect unless you restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service.

Hi Srico

As you can see I have closed the case again.
Just for your information the problem you mention is only with using PST files.
When using Exchange mailbox it doesn't matter.
