Setting mailbox quotas in SBS 2008--how does it affect warning and prohibit settings?

When I set a mailbox quota for a particular user using the SBS 2008 console, how do the  'Issue warning', 'Prohibit send', and 'Prohibit send and receive' variables change as the quota is moved up and down? When the mailbox quota is set to the default of 2GB what are the above variables set to? What is the best way of manually changing these variables. Thanks!

Please follow this KB to change limits globally and view current default limits

I am not sure I get you question but the 3 are independent one from the other, thus changing one will not affect the other unless you manually change it.

You can use the SBS Console to make changes to the various quota settings there.

The user will get their warning as usual when their mailbox approaches the limit.

If you are looking for the "Advanced" section that used to be in SBS 2003's console, then:
 Click Start --> SBS Native [Enter] --> UAC - Continue --> Exchange

The "Advanced" console is called SBS Native Tools and is comprised of the various server MMCs.
