Exchange 2010 Mailbox quota RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have an Exchange 2010 implementation where I like to introduce storage quota's.

    I read the Technet article found at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232173.aspx and I have some questions:

    1. I like to test this on a mailbox. If I set the storage quotas above the allowed size, will I get a warning message immediately? How could I enforce storage quota for a user to see the warning message?

    2. Should I add a system message using , new-systemmessage cmdlet and then set system message using set-systemmessage for the warnings to work?

    3. I guess new-systemmessage cmdlet is required only to modify the default text, is that right?

    4. How could I configure Graphical representation of the storage quota and the amount of storage used in the message body?

    TIA

  • 1. If you set quotas and the size limit exceeds the threshold, an automated email will be triggered everyday. I am not aware of an option to enforce users to forcefully check this automated email. But once the prohibit send quota is crossed, users will be aware for sure and do the cleanup.

    2. To my knowledge, a default system message exist.

    4. You can hover over your name in OWA and it shows you. Outlook 2010 also graphically shows you if the Prohibit Send quota has a value in it.

  • Hello,

    For the third question:

    Use the New-SystemMessage cmdlet in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 to create customized delivery status notification (DSN) or quota messages

    Thanks,

    Simon
