I have a MS Exchange 2003 server SP2 running. If I change user_a's mailbox size setting, how can I make sure user_a uses this setting immediately? What minimum steps (on server and workstation) are required?
Thanks a lot.

No.
Exchange settings are cached, and the cache is only flushed at intervals - which cannot be changed. Microsoft claim the interval is 15 minutes, but in reality it can take 2 hours before some changes are seen.
Resetting the information store is the only way which forces Exchange to read everything fresh and repopulate its cache.

Exchange server is not supported in any cloud-hosted platform (other than Azure with Azure Premium Storage).
ADCs have gained traction within the last decade, largely due to increased demand for legacy load balancing appliances to handle more advanced application delivery requirements and improve application performance.
