Office 365 Exchange Online now 50GB Mailbox per user!
I just thought I would post this up for those of you who may have not seen the recent update, but on the 29th August Microsoft announced that they will be doubling the mailbox storage limit to 50GB!
For further information see: Office 365 technology - Exchange Online mailbox sizes are doubling
You don't need to do anything to take advantage of this new mailbox size. Your mailbox size will automatically be increased. The increase starts rolling out to customers today and continues through November.
This increase to a 50 GB mailbox per user benefits Exchange Online and Office 365 service plans, including: Exchange Online Plan 1, Office 365 Small Business, Midsize Business, Enterprise E1, Government G1, and Education A1. If you have one of our premium service plans (Exchange Online Plan 2, Office 365 Enterprise E3 and E4, Government G3 and G4, Education A3 and A4), you already enjoy unlimited email storage through your personal archive, but now your default primary mailbox size is increasing to 50 GB. Kiosk user mailboxes are doubling in size, too-from 1 GB to 2 GB.
In addition to doubling the storage in your users' primary mailbox, we've increased the size of other mailboxes to help you work even more productively. Shared mailboxes and Resources mailboxes are both increasing to 10 GB (more than doubling), so you'll have plenty of room to store everything you need for your projects and collaborations. The size of Site mailboxes remains unchanged.
So, what will you do with you the increased storage limits? :-)
