    Braddy,
    Start the Exchange administrator. Look at the properties for the private information store. If you need to restict individuals look at the limits tab for each user. The mailbox manager is good if you have management support for automatically deleting messages.

    Hi Joe

    I have not been able to find mailbox manager, Howevever I followed your instructions and I think I shall be OK.

    Incidentaly I shall soon be moving to Server 2000 I don't know whether it will be the same thing there.

    Thanks again

    Braddy, Mailbox manager is a separate download. I'm sure you can find it at the MS Exchange site if you wish. However, if you are going to migrate to Exchange 2000 soon it may not be worth the time & effort. I'm sure there are similar capabilities to limit user mailbox size in Exchange 2000. I'm not familiar with the administrative tools for it so I can't point you to the correct spot. Good luck with it though. I'm sure it will be more adventures.
