I have setup a Ek3 server to go along with an existing E2k box. WHen moving mailboxes I have had some users tell me they could not send mail after the move. The client is Outlook 2003. The size retrictions on the servers for mailboxes are the same. I am unsure what could be causing this. Anyone know what could cause this?

Thanks.

Moving users from one Exchange server to another breaks SIS (Single Instance Storage), which can cause mailboxes to become larger than they were.

Do these users get a mailbox limit exceeded error?

Yes they do, thats the problem. We have a 60 mb mailbox limit and after the move they are going over. Is there anything that I can do about this?

One thing I should add is that recently we ran the esutil on the E2K server that mailboxes are being moved from. I know this compacts and defrgs the private.edb. In doing so does it compress the size in any way?

No a defrag doesn't compress an EDB database it simply removes whitespace (empty space in the database).

As I said SIS is causing this as SIS is broken (not supported) when moving data between servers.

My advise would be to raise the limit for a period, then ask users to clean up their mailboxes.
