Hey guys

I am scratching my head trying to figure out what is going on.  This weekend I backed up all user data and servers and disconnected all 5 users from the domain.  I then completely rebuilt the domain with SBS 2011.  I went to each users computer... joined them to the domain.  I then turned on Outlook 2010 and it worked like a charm.  I then imported each users backed up PST into each users Outlook from their desktop.  Works great.  I made sure that each user had very large storage limits (30 gig each.. they will never get that high but since there is only 5 of them and a 2 terabyte server I wasnt worried about it).  But 2 out of the 5 users are getting messages stating that their inbox is full (the warning says their inbox limit is 2gig).  They are still getting email and sending but the error message in Outlook has them worried.  How can I make this error message go away permanently?

have you checked the warning message threshold under user properties.  Also check the default mailbox policies.

The three quota boxes are set at

30 gig
40 gig
45 gig

I unchecked the box that said to use Default mailbox policies but those are at 60 gig, 75 gig and 80 gig each

Very wierd problem.

Try recreating the outlook profile and let us know.
I recently faced this same problem for few users. After increasing the mailbox quota those users were still getting the mailbox full msg. I recreated the outlook profile it fixed the issue.

Update exchange and outlook with the latest patches. Or recreate the outlook profile.

Actually, after the client restarted his computer and waited a few hours their Outlook cleared up and now shows the correct amount of quota.

Sorry to get everyone involved, I was just concerned.

I will assign points as evenly as possible.
