There is no limit that I am aware of. You can have as many sub folders as you like. The limit comes in how many the user can cope with, as the human brain is finite.

Hi  
I think there is some limit for creating rules and alert for inbox subfolders because we are getting exceed limit error when we apply several rules for the subfolders.

Hi
The Problem was folders rule creation limit. the solution I find it from MS technet
Each rule is made up of seven parts. The rule properties themselves represent from 400 to 500 bytes of data without the recipients. Each recipient averages about from 400 to 500 bytes of space as well, and this data is stored in the conditions and restrictions portion of the rule. Distribution lists are considered one recipient and only take up from 400 to 500 bytes of space. The total amount of space that is allowed for each folder is 32 kilobytes (KB). Out of office e-mail messages are stored as rules, so they take up space as well.

Is there any option to incres the default size of 64KB in MS Exchange server 2003?

Note: The rules size limit for mailboxes in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 has been increased to a default size of 64 KB per mailbox. The rule limit is now a customizable limit up to 256 KB per mailbox.

Your question didn't say anything about rules.
The size of the rules cannot be increased in Exchange 2003. If you have multiple rules then you need to look at either reducing them or combining them.
