Public Folder Mailbox. Storage Limit. False Alerts.

In a follow up to this post

https://mxrnz.wordpress.com/2015/12/07/exchange-2013-split-publicfoldermailbox-ps1-fails/

I had received quota alerts and moved the folders, a default quota of 2 GB, a PublicFolderStatistics only shows 4 MB of data, a Search-Mailbox with -SearchDumpsterOnly returns nothing and yet the alert was still generating.

A quick google brought up the blog post below suggesting this is a bug and I am inclined to agree. http://no-one-uses-email-anymore.com/bogus-public-folder-mailbox-quota-alerts-in-exchange-2013/

My advise in the mean time is to ignore the alert entirely until there is a fix.

A better option would be to remove the reliance on Public Folders altogether. Like all good things, this will take time.
