Hello,

I'm trying to help out a coworker increase the size of his inbox. He's getting messages saying that his inbox quota has been exceeded and that he needs to delete some emails. Deleting emails, however, is not an option in his particular case (at least, things get very complicated and I don't think it would be helpful to get into that right now). I've heard there is a way to set the inbox size to whatever you want (or at least to increase it up to a maximum size), but I'm not sure how to do that. If anyone knows how to do this, I would be very greatful if they could tell me how.

He's working with Outlook 2003 on Windows XP (actually it's Windows XP mode running on Windows 7 if that's important).

The maximum inbox size in Outlook 2003 is 20 gig.
Thats a LOT of stuff!

Why not just group them into separate folders somehow?
In the beginning there was the command line.

He only has 2G of mail in total. Why would it be saying he's exceeded his quota. The HD is 350G and he's no where near that in terms of total data. Is there nowhere to go in and check/change Outlook's inbox quota?

I'll try that and get back to you.

Actually, it was a false alarm. His inbox use to get messaging saying it was full, but the latest message (which prompted me to post this) is actually saying that the attachment he was suppose to receive was too big.
