How to find mailbox size allocated to an outlook user.


we are using outlook 2003 and exchange server 2010 in our organisation, and all the outlook clients are MAPI clients, actually one of the user is not able to receive mails coz his mailbox size has increased. I wanted to check on the server side that how much mailbox size is allocated to him and how much he is actually using in his outlook 2003. Thanks

get-mailbox username | ft IssueWarningQuota,ProhibitSendQuota,ProhibitSendReceiveQuota,UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults

If the UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults field is set to true, then look on the Limits tab of the mailbox database in which the user's mailbox resides for the effective quotas.

Next, to see their mailbox size:

Get-MailboxStatistics username | fl

Open the users outlook and in tools, mailbox cleanup it will tell you the size.
