Hi all,

Have recently created a new user on a 2003 SBS server. This person is replacing someone who has just left so I exported their emails and imported them into the new users profile. Straight away after importing the emails Outlook complained the user was over the email size limit of 2gb. We've deleted pretty much all the old emails and emptied the deleted items folder but incoming emails are still being blocked. Have I missed something? Is there a time period we have to wait for the limit to be lifted?
