What Exchange 2003 or Active Directory policies might prohibit a user from receiving emails if he has too many emails stored on the Exchange server?

I have included a screenshot of the Exchange server's System Policy Properties.

I have also included screenshots of the Delivery options and the Delivery restrictions.

Given all of the settings shown, this particular user should have the following Exchange server email settings:

1. Unlimited mailbox size with no storage limits or warnings.

2. Be able to send & receive emails with a maximum size of 31,000 KB.

Or, are there other places within Exchange Server 2003 or Server 2003 Active Directory where other settings or restrictions can be put in place that will affect a user's ability to send or receive emails?

I'm trying to make sure that I have given a particular user the ability to receive all email messages with a size limit of 31,000 KB or less and that this user doesn't have any restrictions placed on his Exchange Server 2003 mailbox.

Exchange 2003 has a default mailbox limit of 2Gb and unless you set it higher - it may still prevent the user from receiving new mail.

Please set a larger mailbox size and see if the default limit is the problem:
