Exchange 2013 - Increasing the search result limit from 250 to 1000 or more

We need to increase the search result limit on our Exchange 2013. The current default is 250, but this article says with a reg key we can up that. I'm wondering if anybody has done this and what was their experience, good, bad, etc.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Scotch Tech,

I seem to recall changing that setting for a client some years ago, and I do not have any recollection of it causing any issues.

I might be wrong, but I think we changed it to 500, rather than 1,000 but I can't see that being a problem.

To state the obvious, it might relate to what other configuration options are in place on the server / client, so my suggestion would be to test it if possible, and if not, make the change and then test and monitor closely, preferably after hours so that you have time to change it back and fix any problems that might arise.

Good luck!

Alan.
