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

but this particular user isn't added in that group

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

should I run below command but when I checked for that user get-mailboxstatistics , it has check mark  against database defaults which is 1gb so how is he getting the message?

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

I am bit confused what to put in issuewarningquota 4GB or 2GB or 1 GB

Hi,

that user got mailbox quota set to 3Gb, so warning quota must be less then that.
If you don't have that defined, I would set it to 2Gb or a bit more.

Set-Mailbox "John Smith" -IssueWarningQuota 2GB -ProhibitSendQuota 2.5Gb -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 3Gb -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults: $False

PS: I think quota must be in KB, not in GB.

Regards,
Ivan.

Can you simple go to properties of that mailbox, and check size defined in there?

Did you check warning quota on his mailbox, before you run this command?

Maybe his issue warning quota was set to 1gb, and that is the reason. If you did not see what was his quota before running command, then we cant be sure what it is :|

Cant help you with that. If quota was not set to 1gb, then I don't know why was he getting that warning.
Never had a problem with that, since usually it works ok :)

Maybe someone will have more clue..

Ivan.

Well, warning is sent at certain time, once per day. So maybe he got warning before he deleted email?

so as per attached image, if his mailbox size defaults to database size as 1gb , he will only get warning limit email if his mailbox size reaches 2gb , am I correct? let me know so I can close the question
