Finding users whom are not using the Default Storage Quotas


There is a very simple way using the Exchange Management Shell that you can find these users and evaluate if they have a legitimate reason to not be subject to the Database limits.

Open an Exchange Management session and type in the following command:

get-mailbox | where {$_.UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults -ne $true}

Open You will be presented with an output similar to that below:

Name                      Alias                ServerName       ProhibitSendQuota
