This has thrown me for a loop in the past as well, as I had read (and experienced) this first hand. The answer is that Microsoft changed the behaviour of store.exe with 2 hotfixes. The 2 hotfixes that modify this behavior is 916783 and 903158. More information on the change can be found : ...

You can only limit mailboxes by size, not item count in Exchange. Is there any reason you care how many items are there, as long as the quota is maintained? Here is some light reading on Exchange quotas.

Fortunately this is not something you need to worry about. During the migration, there will be short periods where the mailbox is not available, but there is no chance for data loss. Regardless, it's usually a good idea to schedule moves for low-usage times to minimize the user annoyance factor.

What you can do about it is to develop a sensible approach and ensure your users do likewise. After discussing the problem with those concerned you may want to impose quotas, which will force your users to start doing some housekeeping. What you don't want to do is to let this runaway situation continue unabated. It's an unfortunate fact that far too many ...

You can install a mailbox server (presumably Exchange Server) on any domain joined server.

In the managers Outlook or OWA turn off the message Read options. If the manager uses Outlook as their primary email client and doesn't want to turn off the message Read options because it will affect his/her messages then have them use OWA to view the employees mailbox and turn off the message Read options in OWA. EDIT In the OWA options you should have ...

Please post the list of AD groups that this "Entry Level Engineer" belongs to. In the Exchange Management Console, select a representative user and select "Manage Full Access Permission". It should look like this: If there are other users or groups present in that dialog, that's where you'll need to begin to remove access. This is something the ...

The documentation from Microsoft seems to suggest that disabling a mailbox is a straightforward operation. Unfortunately, there are a few "gotchas". Mailbox Retention When a mailbox is disabled, it is reclassified as a "Disconnected Mailbox". By default, Exchange will retain disconnected mailboxes for 30 days. This is an attribute of the database where the ...

Don't do it if you're using Mailbox files. If you were using Maildir you could do at least some of the work without shutting the services down. Every email that is delivered, and every IMAP access, will alter the Mailbox files. You may end up with corrupted files. The best you can do is to shut off IMAP and local delivery, while still allowing postfix to ...

If you want to get rid of the user's mailbox you want to use Disable and not Remove. The Remove choice actually deletes the user's Active Directory user account (which won't work w/ the RID 500 Administrator account).

to export them to PSTs and archive... http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2007/04/13/437745.aspx For earlier versions you need to use a utility called Exmerge. Heres a link that says how to use it on 2007 or 2003. http://www.exchangeinbox.com/article.aspx?i=88

Exchange 2003 stores mail and other items in an information store. Information stores are stored in storage groups. An exchange server can have 1 or more storage groups. Under exchange standard, an information store has a maximum size of 75 GB and you can have a maximum of 1 Mailbox store and 1 Public Folder Store per Storage Group. You can only have 1 ...

Am sure on the postfix system you are running some sort of imap server, you can use imapsync to migrate the mail across to the exchange server while retaining the message flags.

The size limit on import is determined by the max message size settings in Exchange. To import larger mails, you will need to set max sizes using Powershell: Set-TransportConfig -MaxSendSize 100MB -MaxReceiveSize 100MB Get-ReceiveConnector | Set-ReceiveConnector -MaxMessageSize 100MB Get-SendConnector | Set-SendConnector -MaxMessageSize 100MB You then ...

If you want Exchange to automatically enforce a limit, I think you have to resort to monitoring the size of the folders. The Exchange Team Blog has an Article about Finding High Item Count Folders using this PowerShell command: Get-Mailbox | Get-MailboxFolderStatistics | Where {$_.ItemsInFolder -gt 5000} | Sort-Object -Property ItemsInFolder -Descending | ...

(About eight years ago I migrated more than 50 000 user accounts from an old mail server (running uw-imapd) to a new server 'farm' consisting three servers and running Cyrus. At that time I used my l337 Perl skills for creating a migration script which would login to old server and copy the mails the new server over IMAP one user account at a time. An ...

This doesn't really make sense. But if it's not a mistake and you really need to move from a Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Exchange Server 2010 to a Windows Server 2003 one, then... no way. Sorry. Can't be done. You can't install Exchange Server 2010 on Windows Server 2003.

Andrzej's comment above is right on; dovecot isn't supposed to automagically do that. You will either need to tell sendmail to put the mail where dovecot is expecting it (or at least tell its local delivery agent to do that), or tell dovecot to expect it where sendmail puts it. In my case, I do the latter; my dovecot.conf includes the line mail_location = ...

If you don't want to give the user any rights to the live mailbox, you can setup a Transport rule to Bcc a separate mailbox for any incoming or outgoing mail for that user. You could then give the Manager access to the separate mailbox.

You should place a litigation hold on the user's mailbox. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee861123(v=exchg.141).aspx

It's trivially easy to do that with a UNIX MTA, eg sendmail, if you don't mind each email address being associated with an actual user on your system (make the user with useradd; put the aliases in /etc/aliases and run newaliases). I applaud your decision to get out from under the thumb of cpanel, and I reckon you should be fine doing this if you're OK with ...

Ah ha! Forget all of the above. You need the Exchange 2007 SP3 media, which explicitly states that it adds support for Windows 7 and 2008 R2. http://www.microsoft.com/de-de/download/details.aspx?id=24111 This is why the link I originally posted stated support for Windows 7, which I found confusing after reading the info you provided.

Change the booking window to 12 days today, then send out a global email that states what is going on. This isn't as difficult as you might think...why? Because the conference rooms won't even be physically available after March 31st. Which means even if someone two weeks ago booked a recurring meeting that extends all the way to October, that organizer ...

Voting to close - this is a place for people that at least looked at the documentation. Still an answer: yes, you must defrag. Like all non-trivial databases exchange does not automagically reoptimize disc space usage as this is assumed to be secondary (as new emails come in anyway and the sapce will be reused anyway). You find the same behavior in pretty ...

In my company access to Archived PST files via OWA is unavailable so I'd always assumed that it was generally impossible under the available Exchange environments. However, I found this Technet Article that states that as long as you're using at least exchange 2010 or an updated version of 2007 you should be able to see them. Apparently they're called ...

I'm on mobile so a bit brief, but in addition to the actual mail messages an IMAP server assigns unique ID numbers to messages, which are more or less specific to that IMAP server. By migrating you moved the existing mail but the IMAP server generates new unique ID's and mail clients see every old message as new. Tough luck :( ...

reconstruct reconstructs cyrus' indexes. While they may survive a move from one machine to another, nothing guarantees that they will. Reconstruct is also idempotent, non-destructive and non-intrusive, so you can safely run it on migrated mailboxes.

It is likely the additional items that are exported, such as the recoverable deleted items (dumpster). I would mount the .PST file in your outlook profile and check each folder to see exactly where the additional mail items are. A mailbox export will export EVERYTHING within the mailbox, including items that aren't viewable to the user.
