Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Mailbox limits are set at the mail store data base level. Open Exchange Management Console, under Server Configuration click Mailbox. In the Mailbox center pane click your mail server. In the bottom pane right click on any mail store in any storge group. You will find the limits tab there. Set them to whatever you wish and any mailboxes in that mail store will have those limits applied.

    Use the Exchange Management Console to configure storage limit for mailbox :

       - Start the Exchange Management Console.

       - In the console tree, expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.

        - In the result pane, select the server that contains the mailbox database for which you want to configure storage quotas.

        - In the work pane, select the mailbox database for which you want to configure storage quotas.

        - In the action pane, under the name of the mailbox database, click Properties.

       - In <Mailbox Database Name> Properties, click the Limits tab.

        On the Limits tab, under Storage limits, complete the following fields:

    • Issue warning at (KB)   Select this check box and use the corresponding text box to specify the maximum storage limit in kilobytes (KB) before a warning is issued to the mailboxes. The value range is from 0 through 2,147,483,647 KB. If a mailbox size reaches or exceeds the value specified, Exchange will send a warning message to that mailbox.
    • Prohibit send at (KB)   Select this check box and use the corresponding text box to specify a prohibit send limit in KB for mailboxes. The value range is from 0 through 2,147,483,647 KB. If a mailbox size reaches or exceeds the specified limit, Exchange will prevent that mailbox user from sending new messages and will display a descriptive error message.
    • Prohibit send and receive at (KB)   Select this check box and use the corresponding text box to specify a prohibit send and receive limit in KB for mailboxes. The value range is from 0 through 2,147,483,647 KB. If a mailbox size reaches or exceeds the specified limit, Exchange will prevent that mailbox user from sending new messages and will not deliver any new messages to the mailbox. Any messages that are sent to the mailbox will be returned to the sender with a descriptive error message.
    • Warning message interval   Use this list to specify a time at which mailboxes in the database are scanned for compliance with the storage limits configured. Exchange will send notification messages to all mailboxes for which the size exceeds one or more of the storage limits. You can select from one of the predefined intervals in the list or create a custom schedule.
    • To create a custom schedule, click Customize to open the Schedule dialog box. Use the time grid to specify the custom schedule, and then click OK.

        Click OK.

    Hi,

    Mailbox quotas can be set in two places – directly on the mailbox or on the mailbox database.  By default Exchange 2007 sets a quota of 2000MB on all new mailbox databases, and all mailboxes in the database.
     
    The Set-MailboxDatabase cmdlet is used to set default quotas on a mailbox database using the PowerShell command line.
     
    This command will set the default warning quota on the database “Mailbox Database” on server EXCHANGE01 to 975MB, and the limit at which users will no longer be able to send mail to 1000MB:
     
    Syntax:
    Set-MailboxDatabase “EXCHANGE01\Mailbox Database” -IssueWarningQuota 975MB -ProhibitSendQuota 1000MB
     
    The Set-Mailbox cmdlet is used to set quotas on individual mailboxes.
     
    This command will set the warning quota for user juser to 1475MB, and the limit at which the user will no longer be able to send mail to 1500MB.  It will also configure the mailbox not to use the database default quotas

    Syntax:
     Set-Mailbox juser -IssueWarningQuota 1475MB -ProhibitSendQuota 1500MB –UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false
