Exchange 2010 disable quota messages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We need to enable quotas on an Exchange 2010 system to allow an archiving product to base the archiving rules on percentage of quota size.

    But we do not want users to be sent email warnings about reaching quotas. Can this be done by just amending the schedule (default daily at 1.00am) to a custom schedule but do not choose a time ?

    Or is there some other way to disable this ?

    Thanks

  • Hi jarweb,

     

    As far as I know, the way quota warning messages are generated in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 has changed. All mailboxes on a server are checked during the quota warning schedule to see if their size has exceeded the quota warning threshold. If so, a quota warning message is created for that mailbox.

     

    So If you amending the schedule to a custom schedule but do not choose a time, it can help you to achieve the goal.

  • If you set the value for IssueWarningQuota to unlimited, the users will not receive a warning.

    Example:
    get-mailboxdatabase | set-mailboxdatabase -IssueWarningQuota Unlimited

  • Confogire the archiving product to archive before the quota warning level is reached.
