Exchange 2010 - Can't get rid of ProhibitSend on a box with Litigation Hold

Hi all,

First post here, so apologies if it's horrible.

I have a single user, who has reached our corporate limits on mailbox size.  We don't ever prohibit receive, but we will prohibit send when they reach the threshold - the mailbox is on a litigation hold.  We use Exchange 2010.

I've changed it in EMC and through Exchange management shell, to both increase mailbox size, and remove the prohibit send option, so he can send outgoing, however - nothing is updating..  and he still can't send, and when I pull the box info, it's still showing him as prohibitsend (obviously)

I've gave it a fair amount of time to take affect due to AD integration, however, we're on day 2...  

Can anybody help?

Thanks~

Is there a limit on the Database as well?  If so, the limits imposed at the DB level will outweigh the changes at the mailbox level.
Storage quotas are typically configured on a per-database basis. This means that the quotas configured for a mailbox database apply to all mailboxes in that database.

Here is Microsoft's TID on configuring storage quotas for Mailbox Databases:

This has nothing to do with limits. The restrictions are in litigation hold. The entire purpose of litigation hold is that the state of the mailbox cannot change for auditing, subpoena or other legal purposes. Is having the user archive mail not an option? If not:

Remove the mailbox from litigation hold temporarily. Clear the prohibit send and/or make adjustments to the mailbox size.

Place mailbox back on litigation hold.
