Fix Exchange 2007 Event ID 1022 Error 1245

Exchange 2007 Event ID 1022 Error 1245: Logon Failure

Exchange administrators generally put some kind of restrictions on storage and email size so as to manage the size of database. First one is Storage Quota for mailbox! By default, a size for mailbox is defined through the mailbox database size. However, this can customized later and a mailbox can be assigned more or less size for storage. If this limit is crossed, the application sends a message to mailbox owner informing about the defined quota. For example: when a mailbox exceeds the defined quota, “Exchange 2007 event id 1022 error 1245” message is continuously displayed on screen every time attempt to access mailbox is made.

For various reasons, users do not prefer to have limitations on mailbox. May be they never come across the need to do so or most probably they do not know its advantage. However, if look deeper, there are numerous benefits of configuring message and mailbox limit except from the fact that they help to maintain the database well. Let us have a look over some of the advantaged of having message/mailbox quota for Exchange®.

Improved Performance: When Exchange mailbox increases in size, the storage subsystem becomes weak to handle input/output throughput. This eventually affects overall performance of application.

Anti-Virus Scanning: If a file for scanning is large, anti-virus will surely utilize more resources of a system and this will slow down overall scanning process.  Plus, anti-spam protection systems generally do not scan messages that exceed specific size.
