Exchange 2010 mailbox moves to new database automatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Exchange 2010, we have encountered an issue where Exchange 2010 mailboxes are automatically moving from one database to a different database when the file size limit is reached and the user doesn't receive any warning to reduce the size of their mailbox.  Does anyone know where to change or disallow this automatic move setting?

    Thanks -

  • Lisa, Exchange doesn't automatically move mailboxes.  (I assume by "file size limit", you mean the mailbox size limit.)  If you check the EMC, it will show any move requests, as well as who requested them.  Open the move request, then click the Log tab. Click the View button to open the full log of the move request. The first line if the log will say something like the following:  "7/12/2015 9:43:47 AM [MailServer01] 'windomain.company.com/Corp Users/Smith, John' created move request."
