This post will cover how to change the storage quota for a single users in Exchange 2007. If you want to learn how to configure the storage quota for all users in Exchange 2007 check out my previous post.
To Configure the storage Quota for a single user in Exchange 2007 you must do the following:
1.) Open “Exchange Management Console”
2.) Click on “Recipient Configuration” and then “Mailbox”. Right click the individual user that you want to change the mailbox quota for and then select properties.
3.) A new window will open. Click on “Mailbox Settings Tab”, then click on Storage Quotas. There should be a “properties…” button above. Click on that.
4.) A new window will open. Uncheck “Use Mailbox database defaults”. You can change the settings to what ever you want. ** NOTE ** the size is in KB.
Once you uncheck the “Use Mailbox database defaults” you however override the global settings.
