Max Mailbox Size Restriction for Outlook for Mac

I am using Outlook on a Mac OSX and my email mailbox size has grown to 47GB.  I have increased my mailbox online to accommodate a mailbox larger than 50GB+, but I was curious if I was going to run into mailbox size restrictions in Outlook similar to a Windows machine.  If so, is there a way to increase this max mailbox size?

You likely won't hit size restrictions.

And best to remember, if you're actually using a mailbox that's a mbox single file, large mbox files can easily become corrupt + if they do, then recovery may be very time consuming.

Best to only use IMAP servers for large amounts of mail, so each message lives in it's own file.

Are you using Office 365?
