The limit for that server is 18Gigs.  Here's how you increase it with a registry entry.

Hi,
What you need to do is follow above to increase to 75GB, but I would say increasing limit to 75 GB would not be a permanent solution. For a permanent solution, refer to couple of links where I had answered earlier.
Let me know
Thanks

You can also do the following.

Create multiple stores like (Directors, Managers, etc)
Then you move the mailboxes to the following stores been created.
Once done, dismount store and run eseutil /d to defrag the store.

This will help you one day if one of your mailbox stores died on you you will have some users that can work and not the entire company.
