The message failed to be submitted because the storage limit for the mailbox that is submitting the message has been exceeded.

Have you checked if there are specific limits set for this users send limit in ADU&C? There are many areas this can be set but if this is affecting one user only you should probably start by checking their AD account.

You also need to check the mailbox size. From the users Outlook session Right click the top level folder ie. Outlook - Users Name > Select Properties > Folder Size and look for the total size.

You can delete unwanted emails as the user has been allocated with specified storage area for storing emails inot his/her Inbox which is restricting user to send emails.
