If not configured Exchange sets the standard notification schedule to monday, 4 a.m. once a week. To bulk change this, you have to edit all databases properties with the EMC or simply run the following PowerShell command with equals the GUI setting “Daily 2 a.m.” :

Get-MailboxDatabase | Set-MailboxDatabase -QuotaNotificationSchedule ‘So.02:00-So.02:15, Mo.02:00-Mo.02:15, Di.02:00-Di.02:15, Mi.02:00-Mi.02:15, Do.02:00-Do.02:15, Fr.02:00-Fr.02:15, Sa.02:00-Sa.02:15’

To check this settings for all DBs run the following command:

Get-MailboxDatabase | fl Name, QuotaNotificationSchedule




Recently it was necessary to change  the “From” display name of the sending notifications. This notifications appear e.g. when your mailbox size hits the quota or you get an internal NDR. It’s not possible to edit the sender email address in EMC or EMS but you can change the Display Name of this notification sender by using ADSIEdit.

  • Open ADSIEDIT – Configuration
  • Open the following path:
    Services -> Microsoft Exchange -> “Your Exchange Organization” -> Transport Settings
  • Right click properties on CN=MicrosoftExchange329e71ec88ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e

In the properties navigate to “displayName” and edit the default value named “Microsoft Outlook” to the display name you want to have.

Click OK and close ADSI Edit.

That’s it.
