I have set mailbox size limits for individual users. I then set default storage limits for the database. Shortly after applying the default limits I got a call telling me that e-mail was being rejected because the receivers mailbox was full. The users mailbox was only half full. When I removed the default quotas this person could receive mail again. I have verified that this user is not exceeding her limits. Here is an example. I set this users limits to Issue warning at 400MB, Prohibit send at 500MB, Prohibit send and receive at 600MB. I then set the default settings to 100, 200 and 300MB respectfully. Shortly after I applied these settings I got the phone call. Needless to say I am a little nervous about reapplying these setting. Any ideas?

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

Here is a <a href=”http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2006/09/20/428965.aspx”>comprehensive article </a>regarding quotas on mailboxes and mail store data bases. This will help you figure out what you may have missed. I suspect if you set the mailbox first then the database next, the database took precedent. Go back into the mailbox user and make sure “use mailbox data base defaults” is NOT checked.
