Is there a way to set automaticly "Enable Exchange Archive in-place for a user that exceeds a certain amount of xx GB"

Enable Exchange Archive for a user that exceeds a certain amount of XX GB.

Exchange 2013 CU19.

The goal is to keep the OST files to 15GB .
When the 15GB has been exceeded we want to switch on in place Archiving wich kicks the trigger retention policy of 2 years and has the ability to move mail by a user.
We dont want to look at it for a longer time so we are looking to automate this procces.

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.

Size of mailbox and default retention policy did not have any direct relationship
Retention policy cannot see if mailbox size is getting out of limit
To achieve what you are trying to do, set size limited on mailbox
Set retention policy with lower limits

What version of Outlook is being used?  If Outlook 2013 or newer, have you thought about adjusting the slider for the amount of offline data the Outlook profile stores?

Also, you can set up AutoArchive within Outlook to run on a scheduled basis to move items to a PST file.

As far as Exchange is concerned, you cannot do what you are asking and get the immediate results I feel you are wanting.
