Public Folder Limits and Warnings

When I view the EMC and look at the Public Folder Database properties, I see that the "Issue warning at (MB):" is set for 1900.  The actual database size is in excess of 6 gig, so I would have expected that the folder managers would receive a message stating that the folders are exceeding the warning limit and yet they do not.

My intent was to increase this limit, however it would seem that this might not be the correct place to modify it, or it is not working as I expected.

I am hoping that someone here can help me understand why I am not receiving warning messages on my public folder database.

If a public folder doesn't have a specific size limit set on it, these default database level sizes are used.

The warning size set there is per public folder, not the PF database as a whole.

OK, so if it is set at 1,900, does that refer to each possible subfolder (we have several hundred)?  

If so, then there's no way to really manage the database as a whole?

Correct. It's really just the same as normal mailbox databases. You can set default "per mailbox" limits at the database level, and override them individually for specific mailboxes, but you can't set a limit on the database as a whole.

Thanks for the quick response.  That makes sense.  I appreciate the help.
