You can set the maximum as large as you want. The only limit then is the size of your exchane store (75GB as of SP2).

Please read the following article for more information:

I am getting the following error when i am trying to set value upto 3 GB for each user.

Microsoft Active Directory - Exchange Extension
The value for 'Prohibit send at (KB)' is not valid. Specify a value from 0 through 2097151.

Please refer to the following article for the "Specify a value from 0 through 2097151" error on Limits in Mailbox Store properties:
For a specific user

Open the domain context of your domain in ADSI Edit
Open the properties of the user.
Show optional attributes.
Open MDBStorageQuota or mDBOverQuotaLimit  or mDBOverHardQuotaLimit.

For Issue Warning = MDBStorageQuota
For Prohibit Send = MDBOverQuotaLimit
For Prohibit Send and Receive = MDBOverHardQuotaLimit

Edit the value in kilobytes that you want to set, and then click OK. (For example, to set a limit of 3 GB, type 3145728)
