One user unable to save to network shares

I've just recently installed a new Exchange server running Windows SBS 2003 at my company...we were previously on Windows SBS 2000.

I am having a problem where one user cannot save anything to network shares.  Office apps give a "There is not enough disk space" error, and other apps give different messages, but the result is the same...he cannot save to the server. He can open and access files, just not save.

Everyone else is fine, and ALL the permissions are IDENTICAL - I've triple-checked. I have no idea what is causing this and its becoming very frustrating! Any ideas?

    SBS by default sets up quotas on users - 1GB quotas.  Users connected to the server will see the drive as being 1 GB in size and any attempt to save data that would cumulatively push over the limit will result in that kind of error message.

    Either increase the user's quota, have them delete some files, or disable quotas.  Right click on the drive letter in My Computer and select Quotas tab.  The rest should be pretty obvious.
