Reducing the size of space - Outlook 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have exchange server 2003 and my clients have Outlook 2007.

    I have clients that are having their ost/pst files being corrupted whereby they cannot access their mailbox/mails. I have to run SCANPST on each pst files then it's OK.


    - How to reduce the size of a particular mailbox? I believe even after archiving mails to a pst file, there are still some space that i can free up.

    any tool that will compact/defragment a particular mailbox.

    Main concern is storage on my ex server. i'm running out of space thus HIGHLY need to reduce "unused" space.

    Please help URGENTLY.

    And for your concern of storage on your Exchange server, here are some Exchange solutions for your reference:

    1.Set max size limitation on user's mailbox.

  • Thanks Rebecca.

    Infact I got a severe issue on the exchange server where due to lack of space, i have some mailbox stores have been dismounted.

    As resolution I have free some space, like moved some mailboxes, but MAIN ISSUE is that i cannot MOUNT MY MAILBOX STORES AGAIN. I have got lots of mailboxes there.

    Plz see below error I'm having when mounting the stores:

    An internal processing error has occurred. Try restarting the Exchange System Manager or the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service, or both.
    ID no: c1041724
    Exchange System Manager

    Grateful to have the exact resolution for this issue.

    - I have already tried repairing a specific mailbox store. After repairing the store I cannot mount it....same error as above.

    An urgent help will be mostly appreciated.
