Exchange 2007 Mailbox - individual mailbox/storage group quota policy

Hello all,

We migrated from exchange 2003 to 2007. Some of the users have custom mailbox quotas set by the previous IT engineer.

I want all users to inherit the default mailbox storage quota. Is there a way to override this without having to go to every user and clicking on "use mailbox database defaults"?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

I got this from somewhere, cannot recall where though.

get-mailbox -filter { usedatabasequotadefaults -eq $false -AND recipientTypeDetails -eq 'usermailbox'  } | set-mailbox -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $true

The reason we use that rather than the simple

get-mailbox | set-mailbox -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $true

Is because the latter will touch system mailboxes, which shouldn't be touched.

Simon.
