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:

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)
