I know Exchange 2003 SP2 had limit of 75gb.
I have a server with the following:
priv1.edb: 34.5gb
priv1.stm: 7.8gb = 43gb
pub1.edb: 29.6gb
pub1.stm tiny
73gb
Is the 75gb limit a combination of all the files I listed above, or ONLY the priv1.edb and pub1.edb?

To clarify, not combined.   Each individual one.

Thank you for the quick response.  That is a relief! :-)
I have all the articles on how to expand but could not seem to find a document that verifies what files make up the limit.
Do you have a reference point in Microsoft documentation to verifies the statement that it is only the .edb file?
Thanks again.

Microsoft article stating limit is per database.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822440 

Also in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912375 it shows how to increase each individual private and public databases.  They are definately separate limits.
