Troubleshooter: Determining the Size Limit of the Deleted Items Recovery Container

What's the size limit of the deleted items recovery container (aka the dumpster)?

In Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server, the dumpster size is limited to 4GB per Store. In typical operations, you'll probably never hit that limit unless you've either set an extremely long retention period or your users go on an Enron-esque deleting spree.
