Exchange 2010 database limitations not working.

Dear All,

I apply the limitation for all databases in my exchange server but this limitation it’s not apply for the user’s mailboxes, they are exceeding the limit and still they can send and receive emails.

How I can enforce the limitation?

I have exchange 2010 SP2

if you have this limitations sets on all the users and you want to set if as default by configuring your exchange database limits then run this cmdlet on your exchange
Get-Mailbox | Set-Mailbox -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $true

Open in new window

This will set all the mailboxes limits as default

Ensure that you have set all the limits according to the following site:

Then also ensure that the users that are exceeding the limits does not have limits set on their profile itself.

Hope this helps!!!
there is an option in the individual mailbox properities to inherit it's settings from the policy.  check that as well.

This user have storage limitations. You have to uncheck all this storage limits like  "issue warning at, prohibit send as and Prohibit send receive at" once you have uncheck these for all the users then Database limits will apply to their mailboxes.
Good luck...
