How to generate events about users receiving warning messages about mailbox storage limits in Exchange 2003?

You can configure Exchange to automatically report to the Application event log the users who are exceeding mailbox store limits. To configure reporting of which mailboxes are being sent warning messages about their storage space, follow these steps:

1. Start Exchange System Manager.
2. Confirm that each mailbox store has a Warning Message Interval designated (on the Limits property page).
3. Under the Servers container, right-click the Exchange 2003 server you want to report on storage warnings, and then click Properties.
4. Click the Diagnostics Logging tab, open MSExchangeIS, and then click Mailbox.
5. Click Storage Limits, and then set the logging level to Maximum. Click OK.

Once this is completed, you will see the following event IDs in the Application log on the Exchange 2003 server you are monitoring:

◆ Event ID 1077 indicates which mailboxes exceed their storage warning limit.

◆ Event ID 1078 indicates which mailboxes exceed their prohibit send limit.

◆ Event ID 1218 indicates which mailboxes exceed their prohibit send and receive limit (mailbox disabled).
