What are the limits of SBS 2011? Specifically these things:

Max users?
Max mail stores?
Max mail store size

Anything else that I should know?


I need to replace a client's SBS2003 Std box (Exchange mail store limit of 75GB now a problem) so need to know that I'm not about to make things worse without realising.

Many thanks guys.

I imagine it is the same as Exchange 2010 Standard, i.e. you can have 5 mailbox databases (if that's what you meant by mail stores).

DB size is set to 50GB by default but upto 16TB supported (but not recommended. Recommended to stay at 100GB max for a standalone mail server.)

SBS standard (as opposed to essentials)

max users - 75 users or devices
mailbox as per users
no mail store size limit
max memory 32gb

Its a world better than 2003, unfortunately microsoft have cancelled it and it wont be sold by them after christmas so get it now while you can!

Also google sbs swing migration for a dead easy way to migrate.
