I want to send warning messages out to our users when their mailbox reaches certain size. I set the database Limit to issue a warning at 5000 MB.

Database limit
The problem is that mailbox users who have a mailbox size are not being sent any emails. The schedule is set to send Thursday and Friday at 4-4:30PM for testing purposes.

I am not interested in configuring prohibit send.

Thank you.

The link shows this applies to SP1. We are on SP2 RU3. Does it still apply?

Do you believe the registry change will allow us to send limit warnings without setting up send restrictions?
