Mailbox Full Warning in OUTLOOK 2010Hi,
 I created a new user account in SBS2011 and unchecked "Enforce Mailbox Quotas".
 Then I imported about 14GB PST file into this account and I getting the error in OUTLOOK.
 I thought that EXCH 2010 does not have a limitation on mailbox size.
 Please help.

It can take a bit of time to apply, restarting the MS Information store may force it to apply

I restarted Information Store and reimporting 14GB PST file.
When I checked the mailbox size of this new user account, it was 2GB.

So my question is, other than "Enforce Mailbox Quotas" checkbox in SBS2011, is there any other area where it could impose "2GB" limitation on user mailbox in EXCH 2010 / SBS2011?

The user settings will override the mail store settings

You can set the storage quotas in the user properties to whatever you like, by default this will inherit the quota limits from its mail store database properties.  Uncheck at the user level to remove any restrictions imposed via SBS

"Did you delete the ost file on the workstation and let it rebuild itself? " ---> No I did not delete OST file. I am creating user's outlook on the Terminal Server where outlook datais not being cached on a local drive.
