It depends, what is your server config etc. Use Mailbox Calculator tool

If 2000 you will get a good idea with storage calculator

Now comes what is the total size and what should be the DB size

If three servers i would ideally have 9 DB's and have 3DB's per server (but depends if with this some DB's shouldnt be like 100GB and some 250GB)

Rancy,
As your info,  each server has three database. So, Do you mean each server has around 700 mailboxes?

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

I wouldnt simply say on the number of mailboxes but the Database size ..... we have 4 Servers in DAG and each server holds 2 Database .... each server has 24GB of RAM

Each server at my end has 9TB of SAN storage assigned to them so i dont think its a big issue with much storage

I did read some articles. They stated that the database is around 50-100 GB? Is that correct?

50-100 was more preferred for Exchange 2003 but since 2007 Cluster we can have larger databases

Look it depends as today i can restore a 100GB database within an hour so i am good with 100GB anyday ... depends on how you want to take it
