Exchange 2010 SP3 - Public Folder Default settings

All,

Where can I find information regarding the default limits for Public Folders for Exchange Server 2010 SP3?  For example, what is the default size limit for a mail enabled public folder?
I've been searching and found several links on how to 'view' and 'configure' these limits.  I find where to change these limits:  Properties>Limits Tab>Storage quotas>'Use database quota defaults'...but if it's left at the 'default', what is that?
This would be for 'Storage quotas', 'Deleted item retention', 'Age limits', etc.
Does anyone have a good link for Limits for Public Folders for Exchange 2010 (I found links for 2013 and 2016).

Thanks,

The default storage limits are set on the properties of the public folder database.  This article includes an explanation of setting the default storage limits for public folders:

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd335100(v=exchg.141).aspx

Scroll down to paragraph 6 for the Limits section.  You may need to be a little patient after clicking the link. It took a while 30 or more seconds) for the page to load on my workstation.

Thank you for the link above.  I found those settings earlier.  I would like to know though, is if you don't change any of those settings then I'm assuming there are no limits, correct?  Also, would you happen to know if you have a mail enabled public folder what the size limitation is for that particular folder?  I was looking for a link for Exchange 2010..similar to the chart for 2013 and 2016 listed in this link:  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn594582(v=exchg.160).aspx
Some links I found for 2010 came up as page not found....
Thank you!

I haven't used mail-enabled public folders much, but according to this article it's pretty much like configuring the limits for a regular mailbox:

http://tutorial.programming4.us/windows_server/exchange-server-2010---setting-up-public-folders-(part-2)---mail-enable-public-folder---configuring-public-folder-limits.aspx

I can't find any article for Exchange 2010 like the one you cited for 2013 and 2016.  Public folders are handled very differently in 2013/16 than they were previously.

>>if you don't change any of those settings then I'm assuming there are no limits, correct?

Yes, if you leave the limits blank, then there is no limit. However, I did read one article that claimed that there was a built-in public folder database size limit of 1TB in Exchange 2010 Standard, but no limit in the Enterprise edition.  I never ran up against that limit so I can't say what would happen at that point.
