Hi,
I've gone through everything in Exchange but I still have some users who get blocked because of their mailbox size.
I'm Also having problems with the the size of received mail, even though I know I've done eveything that's required.
Any help appreciated

Hi john,

I can think of two possible issues here and I am unsure which one you are seeing.


Mailbox size:


For everyone:
1) In the Exchange Management Console, click in the User Account Control box and expand the Organization Configuration node. Then click mailbox

2)  Click the Database Management tab

3) Right click mailbox database and select properties

4) Click the limits tab and you should see where to note the mailbox database limits

For single users:

1) In the SBS 2011 standard console, click the users and groups tab and then select users

2) Select a user account and the click edit User Account Properties

3)  Select the email tab where you should see the maximum mailbox size information. Once done changing that to what you want click OK.

As for changing the default send/receive limit, this can be done either at the use level or at the global level. Rather than attempt to explain all of this simply via writing I'll send you to Ronny Pot's blog.

Thanks to everyone. I finally found the solution myself. I hadn't changed the user account in the SBS Standard console. These answers though were spot on.
