Exchange 2010 Storage Quota Settings -- Powershell question

Trying to understand the meaning of the Powershell term 'Unlimited' for users whose storage quota setting is set to Default. "Unlimited" also shows for users whose storage quota is truly set to unlimited and not using the database defaults.

Subsun,

What if UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults shows nothing in the value section of get-mailbox cmdlet?
SubSun

Typically the value is set to either False or True.. Null can be considered as False..

Excellent!!

There is a correction..
I have done some testing by setting the UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults of user mailbox to $null. It appears that, even the GUI and PowerShell shows the mailbox limit is set as Unlimited, the actual limit applied to mailbox is from database. Which means Null is considered as True (If any mailbox is set to UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults as null, then the limits set on Database will take precedence.)
