Obviously you got to use Set-Mailbox -Identity USERNAME -IssueWarningQuota 209715200 -ProhibitSendQuota 262144000 -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 293601280 -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false  for one user
Thanks

From what you wrote the values are in bytes/kilobytes and please verify my thoughts below:
"209715200" = quota reached where user will get warning that mailbox is approaching limit
"262144000" = quota reached user is prohibited from sending more email, but can still receive email
"293601280" = quota reached that user can neither send, nor receive email

The command then to increase/decrease a user's mailbox size/quota is to in a sense toggle the numbers respectively after
- "IssueWarningQuota" X
- "ProhibitSendQuota" Y
- "ProhibitSendReceiveQuota" Z

Do let me know.

Hi Troy,
The figures used above were: (and yes you are right in your assumption)
  • Custom Warning : 200 MB
  • Prohibit Send: 250 MB
  • Prohibit Send and Receive: 280 MB
On the second part, yes to increase/decrease just change these figures in the Command
Thanks

Hi Nitin,

Another question - is the "USERNAME" going to be the alias or the user's email address?

Hi
The -Identity parameter identifies the mailbox. You can use the following values:
  • GUID
  • ADObjectID
  • Distinguished name (DN)
  • Domain\Account
  • User principal name (UPN)
  • LegacyExchangeDN
  • SmtpAddress
  • Alias
Please refer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123981.aspx
Let me know
Thanks

Increasing size of a mailbox quota/limit:

Set-Mailbox -Identity USERNAME -IssueWarningQuota 209715200 -ProhibitSendQuota 262144000 -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 293601280 -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false


USERNAME = user's email address

Custom Warning : 200 MB            -IssueWarningQuota (number foll. by default is in BYTES!)
Prohibit Send: 250 MB                              -ProhibitSendQuota      (number foll. by default is in BYTES!)  
Prohibit Send and Receive: 280 MB         -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota (number foll. by default is in BYTES!)

"209715200" = quota nearly reached;user will get warning that mailbox is approaching limit
"262144000" = quota reached; user is prohibited from sending, but can still receive email
"293601280" = quota reached; user can neither send, nor receive email

USERNAME =
    * GUID  
    * ADObjectID
    * Distinguished name (DN)
    * Domain\Account
    * User principal name (UPN)
    * LegacyExchangeDN
    * SmtpAddress
    * Alias
