Default Re: Exchange 2007 Mailboz Max Size ?

You can change the maximum size limit for mailbox in the properties of the mailbox database under the limits tab (this will change the limits for all mailboxes that are stored in this database)

To get to this open the Exchange Management Console
Click Server Configuration->Mailbox

You can also change this on a mailbox by mailbox basis by right clicking on the mailbox you wish to modify and change the settings under Storage Limits (from memory)

2gb is the largest size the GUI will let you set. If you want to larger than that then it is an ADSIEDIT. However I wouldn't recommend doing it that way. Once you get above 2gb you may as well let them go unlimited.

For unlimited you just remove the limits completely. If the box is blank then there is no limit.
