Configure Archive Quotas for a Personal (On-Premises) Archive

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP1

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

Because personal (on-premises) archives are created with unlimited storage quotas by default, you'll need to use the mailbox's property page to configure storage quotas for the personal archive. The following is a list of the quotas that you can configure with a description of each.

  • Archive warning quota   When a personal archive exceeds the specified archive warning quota, an event is logged for the Exchange administrator and a warning message is sent to the mailbox user.
  • Archive quota   When a personal archive exceeds the specified archive quota, messages are no longer moved to the archive and a warning message is sent to the mailbox user.

In the EMC, you can configure only the archive warning quota. In the Shell, you can configure the archive quota and the archive warning quota.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Recipient Configuration > Mailbox.
  2. In the result pane, select the user mailbox you want to configure.
  3. In the action pane, click Properties.
  4. In <Mailbox Name> Properties, click the Mailbox Settings tab.
  5. Select Archive Quota, and then click Properties.
  6. Select the Issue warning at (MB) check box, and then use the corresponding box to type the personal archive size in megabytes (MB), at which a warning will be sent to the user.
  7. Click OK.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

noteNote:
You can't use the EMC to configure the archive quota for a mailbox.

This example sets the Chris Ashton mailbox archive quota to 1 gigabyte (GB), at which time the user will receive a warning message that the personal archive is full and will no longer be able to move items to the personal archive. This example also sets the archive warning quota to 950 MB, at which time the user will receive a warning message that the personal archive is almost full.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Chris Ashton" -ArchiveQuota 1GB -ArchiveWarningQuota 950MB

For detailed syntax and parameter reference, see Set-Mailbox.
