I am trying to apply a mailbox quota to certain mailboxes only. How do I do this without manually going to each mailbox and setting? For instance can I apply  policy for a department or org unit? Or any other field? Surely there is an easy way to do this?

Cheers

Create a new database and move the mailboxes that need the quotas to the new DB.  Configure the appropriate quotas unther the limits tab on the DB properties page.

So if you have lots of departments or policy set up a new database? Whilst this may work is there another way?
