Exchange Quota Warnings and restrictions
Posted on 2013-01-30
When are users warned that they have exceeded their quota? The warning does not seem to happen right away.
I created a test by importing a 2Gb PST into an account that has a 1GB limit.
Then, I logged out and logged back in. I was not warned about exceeding the quota limit.
So, I rebooted the server. Now, when I log in as a user I am given a message that I have exceeded a quota. Why is there a delay and why doesn't Exchange stop the user from importing data when they have exceeded the quota? What am I missing and how does the quota system work?
