I am guessing you mean mailboxes. You can create multiple storage groups to host more mailboxes on your server.
If you do not want to create a new storage group you will need to upgrade to enterprise version.

Thanks

Exchange 2003 Standard Edition cannot host more than 1 mailbox store per server. It is limited to one mailbox store, which can be collectively no larger than 75GB.

Provided you have Service Pack 2 installed, you can add a registry change to extend the size of the mailbox store to the 75GB threshold. The method for changing the size limit is as shown in the following article: http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6063252.html

I am assuming you are requesting how to expand the Database limit from the default 16GB to 75GB.

The default Database size in exchange 2003 standard is 16GB, it can be extended to up to 75GB. To adjust the database size limit browse tot he following keys, replacing <servername> with server's name.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\<Servername>\Private-GUID
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\<Servername>\Public-GUID

In these two keys create a a new DWORD value called "Database Size Limit in GB", adjust the decimal value of this key to set the new database size limit you would like to implement. Once they key is set, simply dismount and remount the modified stores.

Keep in mind this feature was added with Exchange2003 SP2, ensure that your Exchange Server is at least at that level.
