Which mailbox storage indicator is correct?
Posted on 2011-03-25
When I right click on my mailbox in my outlook 2010 client and go to properties and folder size, i see local data total size at 133490 KB and server data total size as 145152KB. However, when I open ESM on our server (SBS 2k3) and go to Administrative groups --> Servers --> SAMSSERVER --> First Storage Group --> Mailbox Store --> Mailboxes and find my name in the list, i see a mailbox size of 367291KB. Which source is more accurate? Also, which source should I trust when I have to increase mailbox sizes due to users getting limit reached messages from outlook?
