Rule limiation regarding Outlook 2007 on workstation in conjuction with Small bus server 2008 and echange 2007

Not open for further replies.


Do I understand correctly, if I upgrade from Outlook 2007 to outlook 2010, I would be able to have more rules allowed on my workstation, which is connected to a small business server 2008 using exchange 2007? In other words, how do I expand the rule functionality on XP pro workstation connected to the exchange server so I am not be limited by my outlook 2007 rules? It says that I am out of space. What do I have to click on and which computer do I click on it. Where do I go in exchange 2007 on small business server 2008, within the core store, to expand the public and personal folder rule limitations?



In Exchange 2003, each mailbox had 32 KB of storage for outlook rules. In Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010, the default storage for outlook rules was raised to 64 KB and is configurable up to 256KB. To give yourself more room for your outlook based rules, you would use the set-mailbox command, for example if you wanted to modify everyone on your exchange server, you could try something like this:

get-mailbox | set-mailbox -RulesQuota:256

Or if you wanted to set it for one person only:

set-mailbox aliasname -RulesQuota:256

Here are a few links for further reading:

One last thing to note, disabled rules do not count against your storage quota. Hope that helps.
