  • Exchange 2000 mail box

    I have been looking for a while to find out what is the default size of a mail box in Exchange 2000. Everywhere I looked it tells me how to change the size or settings, this however I already know, but there is a box that allows you to select Default size limit. I just would like to know how big that is.

    there is no limit for an mailbox..
    max database size voor exchange standard is 16 gb, for enterprise, unlimited... (although ntfs has the limit for 16 tb)
    however there is a limit for PST files (2gb)

    As far as the physical limitations of the size of any given mailbox, the Standard edition of Exchange has a limit of 16 GB per mailbox. The Enterprise version, however, is only limited by the size of an NTFS volume (16 terabytes).

      Well that limit is one which is due to the pst starting to corrupt. Its not an intended limit byt microsoft. They claim that PST's made with Outlook 2003 solve this problem and then are only limited by the file system on which they are stored. When i worked for Reckitts & Benckiser it was a problem we came accross LOTS!!! ScanPST was a tool used daily!!!

        are u sure? i almost think its by "design"..
        you're completly right about corruption, but reaching to the 2 gig, is always a problem.. so exually is also the limit

          The reason why i believe it not to be by design is:

          1) It is never the same total that causes the failure (as it says in the KB 'approximatley 2gb')

          2) I've seens PSTs working happily at 3gb.

            first i agree...
            second, i never saw a pst larger then 2 gb..
            but ok... there are a lot of articles to be founded when he's reaching the 2 gb... so its for me the "unofficial" maximum size

                Re: Exchange 2000 mail box

                Howzit,

                Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 has both a different format and a larger overall size limit for the personal folders (.pst) file than the .pst files that are in the earlier versions of Microsoft Outlook. In Outlook 2002 and earlier, the .pst files are in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) format, and the overall size has a limit of 2 gigabytes (GB).

                By default, .pst files are in the Unicode format in Outlook 2003. Additionally, the overall size of the .pst files has a limit that is more than the 2-GB limit that is imposed by the ANSI .pst files. By default, the limit for a Unicode .pst file in Outlook 2003 is configured to be 20 GB. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
