Q: How do I check my Exchange Quota with Outlook?

Some methods only show current usage. The default Quota is 23 GB

Outlook 2016/2013/2010 Windows

Note: These steps assume you are connected to your MIT Email account via Exchange. By default, this feature is turned off, so you must turn it on to view quota information. Here's how:

  1. Start Outlook.
  2. Right-click anywhere on the bottom Outlook bar.
  3. Click on the first option Quota Information and you will see that it switches to the "On" mode.
  4. You can now see the amount of free space left and the number of items you have in each folder, in the bottom left hand corner of the Outlook bar.

Outlook 2016/2011 Mac

Note: These steps assume you are connected to your MIT Email account via Exchange.

  1. Start Outlook.
  2. Right-click on your account name within your mail folder listing and select Folder > Properties from the sub-menu.
  3. From within "Folder Properties" screen, click on Storage.
  4. Depending on the number of objects (mail folders, calendar items, contacts, and tasks) you have in your account, it can take minutes for your quota usage information to be retrieved.
