Is there a max size for an exchange folder ?

We are moving from POP to  .pst  to exchange

I noticed one user has a 15 gig .pst file

Is there a max exchange 365 size ?

Personally given what I have seen I would not allow people more than 10 - 15GB, so many user issues are reported after this point.

O365 mailbox is 50GB and depending on your license it can be 100GB.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks just to explain my comment a bit further, I know you can have "unlimited mailbox sizes" and whatnot theoretically these days but that is just ludicrous advice from an IT administration point of view, you will have CEO's down at your desk crying when they search they cannot do anything on their computers or find any mail.

So once behind 10 - 15 gig the entire pc / outlook  crawls and crashes ?

Is there a way to just down load the headers and then when clicked it downloads the rest in outlook ?

I’m only getting used to using exchange and thought it would be way more stable and capable of holding 20 + gif of emails

it depends on so many variables from server setup to client setup it is kind of open ended and a ever changing question.

I had a big 2013 setup latest patches, good BPA, solid setup, very very fast SAN, faster SAN most likely than any of you due to an insurance claim we had.  and guys 20GB+ were crawling. They had very high spec PCs, the network was super fast with no bottlenecks and 10GB interconnects.

I have just seen it cause so many problems. What is your enviroment?
