EXCHANGE, ACTIVE DIRECTORY

I  have in AD 3 gig group when users are added in it. and script runs from task scheduler  which converts user mailbox to 3gb

 we recently converted to 4gb.

 but some users are getting this automated message at 1am in their mailbox, how can I remove them (attached message)

 even they are in 4gig group and their users mailboxes are below limit.

The example for changing the warning limit for just one user is as follow:

Should I run below command

 Set-Mailbox "John Smith" -IssueWarningQuota 4GB -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults: $False

but if I do this their issue warning changes to 4194304kb and prohibit quota shows blank

am I missing something

IvanSystem EngineerCommented:
Well,

do you have any requirements regarding prohibiting send and receive on mailbox?
Thing is, whit ProhibitSendQuota 4gb, user will not be able to send email, when mailbox reaches 4Gb.
I am guessing that every users is going to complain and someone will either increase limit, or will backup it's mailbox.

Sounds logical that they will notice it, so I would set ProhibitSendReceiveQuota to 4.5gb.

If you don't have any requirement, or not sure what to do, and want to leave it blank, then simple skip
that step, like:  

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Joe Healy" -IssueWarningQuota 3.8gb -ProhibitSendQuota 4gb  -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false

Regards,
Ivan.
