    Go to the properties of the user in the active directory , then on the exchange general tab >Storage limits, uncheck the option that says use mailbox store defaults and then check the boxes for Issue warning at (KB), Prohibit send at (KB), Prohibit send and recieve at (KB) and add the values you want in KB to increase the mailbox size for that user.
