Your mailbox can no longer send or receive messages. Please reduce your mailbox size. Delete any items you don't need from your mailbox and empty your Deleted Items folder."

I know I'm missing something...  Any advice on where to look ?

Ok well its at StorageLimitStatus      : BelowLimit
Question way is this at RTM and not service packed?    are you seeing anything in the event logs
MinotAuthor Commented:
Nothing in the event logs that explain the error.   I've scheduled SP2 update for this week.  I suspect that will resolve the issue.

Thanks for the help.
MinotAuthor Commented:
The message turned out to be a "Red Herring."  The user with the message is also the forward target of a mail box. The mail box over the limit was the mail box being forwarded not the users mail box.  I was also led to believe that other users were having the same issue, but this also turned out to not be true.

The one good thing about this was I was able to get the user to commit to SP2 upgrade which I did last night.

Thanks all for the help.
