I have never been trained via microsoft, but i've always thought this to be prudent. I've always set quotas as the available disk space divided by the number of users.
So much this. I've seen Exchanges purring along without any quotas - and left the sysadmin (ME) with the nightmare of managing the resultant overflow from all the crap.
Implemented quotas, but lusers started to bitch when their preciouses mailboxes was too large for them to mangle properly. Bah and humbug.
At least Exchange is now outsourced, and that is somebody else's worry (storage, backup etc). |
Never again, have had enough of being an email admin.
