Hi,

yes it is, and you don't need script.
Every email notification regarding mailbox is full has a text with subject "your mailbox is almost full"

So, just create transport rule on Exchange, to BCC email to administrator. I have attached picture with it. It is from Exchange 2013.

Ivan, thanks for your timely answer.
My company has Exchange 2010, I think the version doesn't have much differences, but, can you tell me where can I do this Rule? I mean, the rule is under the account that I want, when it is almost full, send a message with the alert?

Once again thanks for your answer and let me explain to you. We have a account where we do a backups of mails, so one of my partners want to know when the mailbox of this account is almost full.

Hi,

I would create transport rule even for that situation, not in Outlook. That way, you can have information for all mailboxes that are near limit, but if you want just for that one account, you can modify rule with one more step. That would be to define who's mailbox is full.

Modified picture is in attachment.

On Exchange 2010, you would open Exchange console --> Organization Configuration --> Hub Transport, and then on Transport rules click to create new rule.

Regards,
Ivan.
