Exchange 2007 issue warning quota message

One of our customers reported that they were getting a "issue warning message" because their emailbox is close to being full (the graphic showed the mailbox at 238 MB out of 292 MB).  The default limits that have been set on mailboxes is 300 MB.

My question is why didn't this person receive a message say at 240 MB? Should it be of any major concern that the message was sent at 238 MB?

If you run the following in EMC you will see all the limits set in the environment:

Open in new window

Ensure that all your limits are set according to the following article: http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2007/management-administration/exchange-2007-message-size-limits.html

Now you would be able to control at what size they receive the warnings.

Thanks for the information, however, the limits are set correctly and there have been no changes to them since they were implemented. The warning has been set to 240, however, this person's mailbox gave them a warning at 238 instead of 240 (this person's mailbox uses our universal defaults).

Please post the results of the above command?

I mean we are talking about 2MB difference, which should not be a major issue. But I suspect that the warning gets issued at 238MB, Prohibit Receive Limit will stop at 240MB and Prohibit send would then occur at 245MB or something like that.

So please post the results?
