SBS 2011 user change quota not working

Hey there,

I have a user who I'm trying to raise their mail quota from 2gb to 4gb.  I've done it in the console and exchange itself in the database server but it's not working.

It does say it's changed in both locations, but not on the laptop itself.

Please help!

Changes should be made via the SBS console and can take up to 2 hours to become visible on the client computer.

Give it time and it will sort itself out.

what about changing the database server limits?  Should that be the same?

Most settings can take a while before they become set.  What server limits are you talking about?

If you are referring to message size limits, just restart the Microsoft Exchange Transport service.
