  • Hi,

    The links provided by Udara are presented in a comprehensive.

    If you want to configure the quota for all mailboxes, you can set mailboxes to use the database quota and modify the database quota.

    You can use EAC or the following command to configure the quota for a database:

    Set-MailboxDatabase -Identity <Database> -ProhibitSendQuota <size> -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota <size> -IssueWarningQuota <size>

    The IssueWarningQuota parameter specifies the warning threshold for the size of the mailbox. If the mailbox reaches or exceeds this size, the user receives a descriptive warning message.

    The ProhibitSendQuota and ProhibitSendReceiveQuota specifie the size limit for the mailbox. If the mailbox reaches ProhibitSendQuota setting size, the mailbox can't send new message. If the mailbox reaches ProhibitSendReceiveQuota setting size, the mailbox can't send or receive new messages. ProhibitSendReceiveQuota value effectively determines the maximum size of the mailbox.

    Note that the ProhibitSendQuota value and IssueWarningQuota value must be less than or equal to the ProhibitSendReceiveQuota value.

    By default, user mailboxes are set to use the database quota. You can use the following command to check again, and make sure UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults is set to true:

    Get-MailBox -Identity <MailBoxName> | select UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults

    If you want to configure the quota for all mailboxes, you can set mailboxes to use the database quota and modify the database quota.

    By default, user mailboxes are set to use the database quota. You can use the following command to check again, and make sure UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults is set to true:

    Get-MailBox -Identity <MailBoxName> | select UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults



    1. If the users you want to assign size are using default quota, you can configure the database quota directly with the following command:

    Set-MailboxDatabase -Identity <Database> -ProhibitSendQuota <size> -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota <size> -IssueWarningQuota <size>


    Note that the ProhibitSendQuota value and IssueWarningQuota value must be less than or equal to the ProhibitSendReceiveQuota value.

    2.If the users you want to assign size are using custom quota, you can configure the single mailbox quota with the following command:

    Set- MailBox -Identity <MailBoxName> -ProhibitSendQuota <size> -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota <size> -IssueWarningQuota <size>
