Confirm That You Set Public Folder Storage Limits Correctly in Exchange 2000

To confirm that you configured the public folder limits correctly:
1. Change the generate warnings schedule to run constantly on the public folder store.
2. Modify the permissions on a test public folder so that only you can add items to that public folder.
3. Log on to Outlook as yourself, and then add postings and attachments to the public folders until you receive the warning messages.

NOTE: It may take up to 15 minutes after you add the postings to receive the message.
4. Add postings that have attachments that exceed the allowable size limit.

These postings cannot be saved to the folder.
If you exceed the prohibit post limit, any messages that you send to the public folders are returned as undeliverable. After you confirm the public folder store limits, use the same procedure on a public folder on which you set individual limits.

To check for folder sizes in Outlook:
1. Log on to the Outlook client computer.
2. In the Folder List column, expand Public Folders, right-click All Public Folders, and then click Properties.
3. Click the General tab, and then click Folder Size.
To check folder sizes in Exchange System Manager, click the Public Folders object under Public Folder Store (Servername) in the left pane. The mailboxes that are hosted on that store, their size, and the number of items that they contain are displayed in the right pane.

NOTE: After you finish testing, reset the schedule to generate warning messages.
