I think this may have to do with the .pst file being to full..if this is the issue how cna I remedy it ?? Thanks all
This is because the users' mailboxes have reached their maximum file size.  You can change the file size of the mailbox one of two ways.
Globally (for all users)
1) Open the Exchange System Manger
2) Go to Administrative Groups->First Administrative Group->Servers->%servername%->First Storage Group->Mailbox Store.
3) Open the Properties of the Mailbox Store
4) Click on Limits
5) Increase the value of the mailbox store limits or if you don't want to enforce any limits you can uncheck the values.
6) You can see the mailbox size of each of the users by clicking on Mailboxes under the "Mailbox Store"

Change Limits for Individual Users
1) Open Active Directory Users & Computers
2) Open the Properties of the user account you want to edit
3) Click on the Email General tab
4) Click on the Storage Limits tab
5) Uncheck the "Use mailbox store defaults" checkbox.  You can enter a different value for each box or leave them blank to allow an unlimited size.
I had the same problem. I can say this solution worked great! It was quick and to-the-point.

I also looked at article IDs: 16040173, 22042497, 22066599, 22408688, 22649777, 22704733, 22985544. I found these other articles to be very round-about, very indirect, may people with many suggestions, but none actually right. It would be great if we could put a pointer to this article at the beginning of each of those others to save time for other searchers.
