Re: Mailbox sizes... WTF...?!?!?!
You need to spread the word to users that they MUST clean up their mailboxes by COB on [date]. Anything older than [days] still in their mailboxes at that time will be permanently, irrecoverably purged. Require that they reply to the email acknowledging they understand their compliance is mandatory. Then, do a CYA backup of the mailstore followed by the purge.
It also sounds like your org needs to implement and enforce a formal records retention policy that covers both paper and electronic information. Even if you're a small fry in an unregulated industry, you never know when you could be slapped with a subpoena for your mail store, archives, backups, even BYODs. You don't even have to be the ones directly involved in litigation: A number of my clients have been subpoenaed by simple virtue of having exchanged electronic or snail mail on a regular basis on matters completely unrelated to the litigation.
