Yeah...I have read this (and other) blogs...many of these refer to theory or are aged (as an example, the link you reference is ~5 yrs old).

I am looking for real-deal examples...here is what we are doing today:

Number of Mailboxes: 3000
Number of Mail servers: 12

Mail flow:
    Limit for incoming messages: 10
    Limit for outgoing messages: 10
    Recipient limits: 250

Issue warning at:
    1 GB for Executives/Directors - 10% of staff
    750 MB for Accounting/Managers - 15% of staff
    500 MB for Mid-level Managers/Sr. Users - 15% of staff
    250 MB for all others - 60% of staff

Prohibit send at: never
Prohibit send and receive at: never

Just curious what other admins out there are doing...
