  • Viewing Exchange Quota via Outlook or AD but how?

    Hi friends,

    I'm a new member of this excellent forum. First of all i want to say hi to everybody

    If u let me i'll ask a special question to advanced users. Users are checking their mails via Outlook that is connected to a Exchange server. How can they view their quota without domain or exchange admin rights? They have only local admin rights. Or is there any tool for clients to learn their Exchange quota limit?

    Thanks already.

    In Outlook (2003)
    Right Click "Mailbox-username" in folder view
    Select Properties
    Click on Folder Size button in General tab

      Thanks for ur reply Ossian but this only shows your usage size. Not your entire quota/limit.

        Apologies -- I thought that was what you were wanting.

        Why not email users with their quota and let them check how far they are against it?

          In our company we have many staff with different capabilities and different jobs. So they have different quota limit. For example one of the accountants has 250 MB exchange limit. Or a manager has 1 GB of limit. Some of them don't know how much capacity they have. Imagine a script that shows their quota when double click on it or another way of viewing quota via 3rd aprty software. How can i handle it?

          Thanks
