Have them archive mail to reduce the inbox.

It does not matter any more what the limit is. People ignore Outlook until it causes issues. Tell them to archive and fix their issue.

We will archive, however I need to make sure he can send/receive email. Outlook 2010 can hold more then 10gb?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Outlook 2010 by itself should be able to handle a 20Gb PST file. I do not know what limits your Exchange may have put on it.

However, 10Gb may slow Outlook to a crawl. I keep my own main PST file below 1 Gb. Archives are readily indexed and searchable and I do not see any penalty for using archives.

It must be an Exchange issue and I cannot help with that.

If you believe to be a local Outlook 2010 issue, do an Outlook Repair (Programs and Features, Office, Change, Repair). and then make sure SP1 for Office is installed.
