I am trying to enforce storage limits for mailboxes on exchange 2003.

- I am enforcing this through ESM at the mailbox store level.
- I have confirmed that there are no restriction setteng at the user level in AD
  The users are set to use the mailbox store defaults.

The users can and are going over the limit with no restrictions and no warnings.

Any Ideas?

This may see like a silly question, but are you sure you set the limits correctly?  It's a little tricky because you have to type the number in kilobytes.  So, for example, if you want their limit to be 500 MB, you have to type in 500000.  So, if you typed in an extra 0 (i.e., 5000000), you would be setting the limit at 5GB instead of 500MB.  Really, I'm not trying to belittle your intelligence or anything, but I made the same mistake the first time I set them up :-)

Hope this helps!
