I have Max setup on a server and recently received alerts that the exchange database has creeped over 30GB. There are 8 users. I believe the 30GB might have been a default number in Max.
Does anyone have a recommendation on how large is too large? Per user or on an overall basis? And when a store gets too large how do you resolve that? Do you tell users to empty their deleted items? Do you have them or you yourself archive older mail? All which interfere with how they work. Does setting the recovery of deleted items to several years negate the emptying of the deleted items folder because the system will save the emails anyway? Are their maintenance steps you do if not to compress the store, to simply ensure the store is in a good condition.?
