We just installed a new SBS 2011 server with Exchange 2010. I have everyones email up and running but the Outlook shows an error saying Mailbox is over the size limit for all users. However I have gone into the Exchange manager and removed the limits both in each users account and the global settings. The users can still send and receive email but how do I clear the error that pops up in their Outlook?
