How to allow one mailbox to not have a Quota when the mailbox Store has a quota ?

We have quotas on our Mailbox Store  of 500 MB.  I have one user the President who needs to have no quota.   If I turn off on his AD acount the use the Default for Quota ...Does that effectively give him no Quota ?     We did have him set manually to a  2GB quota which looks like the biggest that can be set manually.     I would like to have it where just he has no quota and the rest still have a quota.   Can I do it that way and just turn off the Use Default and it will give him no quota requirement ?

Yes

Adsiedit.msc is for mailbox size greater than 2GB
>Also if I turn off Quota for the entire Mailbox Store  does it take effect immediately or do I have to stop/state Info Store.
not immediately. it takes some time for the changes to replicate and for the information store to refresh its cache. restart of service is not required.

that is correct.
also to set a quota of more than 2GB, you can check http://www.petri.co.il/setting_mailbox_limits_over_2gb.htm

Just to clarify so I am sure ..... When I say do not use quota for the one VIP but do not set a value in the ESM  it will not give him any quota ?   Is that what you are saying ?    Or do I have to go in and do the ADSIEDIT and set it manually ?

Also if I turn off Quota for the entire Mailbox Store  does it take effect immediately or do I have to stop/state Info Store.   Rather not do this.

Really want to just let the one VIP have NO Quota without having to move him to another Store.

Thanks,
David

Yes, clearing the checkbox for using store quota and leaving the values blank will result in no limits.
