Go to the User's properties in Active Directory Users and Computers and in the Exchange tab...set the limits you choose.

The tab is "Exchange General" and then "Storage Limits". Take the tick out of "Use mailbox store defaults". If you want to know what your mailbox store default is...go to Exchange System Manager and drill-down til you find the applicable Mailbox Store, right-click and choose "properties" then the "limits" tab and you will see a storage limit...if you have one.
