Not too long ago I've discovered a number of user's mailboxes capacities decrease less than 250MB allocation we set up. As an alternative, the user's mailboxes volumes have got decreased to either 65MB or even 25MB and those volumes appear to be all over the board(currently for about 10+ users).We determined this issue because of the consistency of number of warning messages these users have been obtaining improved considerably(as anticipated)and also whenever looking at the mailbox capacity identified the reduction. With regards to I know, no person has gone in a reset individual's allocation.
User’s mailboxes capacities decreased drastically
The user mailbox capacities have gone down, the same has been identified, when there were number of warning coming up. The issue here could be because of temporary files stored on the mailbox, remaining unused. Also there is a chance that some of the configuration files/data might be corrupted.
