    We are using a few Generic Mailboxes in our organisation. These Mailboxes are not monitored on a daily basis. Is there a way we can set up an Alert email to be sent out from the mailbox automatically when the storage is reaching a Capped Quota Limit?

    Yes, it is possible, no I don’t remember how to do it.

    To make it easier, I’d group all the unattended mailboxes in one store and then set size restrictions. You can set it in ESM to fire off email alerts when the mailboxes reach a certain percent capacity. You could also set them to disallow sending/receiving when they reach near-capacity. The alerts are for individual mailboxes, but they are set at the store level.

    I wish I could help you with the particulars, but I don’t have an Exchange box to play with anymore.

    set quota on mailboxes.
    set warning when quota is in threat
    set transport rule to notify administrator as well as mailbox itself:

    or, using any existing monitoring system, write a powershell script:
    1. import mailbox names from a list
    2. get-mailboxstatistics
    3. if data above quota, trigger alert in moinitoring system.

    run script once a day.

    Ahem… user appears to be on Ex03, so not sure if transport rule (or powershell) will work
