Exchange 2010 - disable quotas

exchange-2010-IconQ. Users are getting alerts about mailboxes running out of space -- can I disable quotas altogether? I am running Exchange 2010.

A. Yes, here's how:

Start EMC. Expand: Organization Configuration -> Mailbox. Right click on the main mailbox database and select "Properties"

 

disable-quotas-1

Under "Properties", select "Limits" tab and uncheck all 3 checkboxes:

disable-quotas-2

Click "Ok". 

You have to restart Microsoft Exchange Information Store for changes to take effect on the server. Close and re-open Outlook for the changes to be visible on the computer.
