Exchange 2003 migration to 2010 on server 2008

I am in the middle of a 2003-->2008 Exchange migration.  Exchange 2003 on a older Server 2003 box.  Exchange 2008 on a new Server 2010 box.  Have both exchange servers talking to each other.   All is well.   I started the migration of user mailboxes that was less than 2gb.  No problems no issues.
HOWEVER, the first user I migrated that had a mailbox in excess of 2gb I get the following error...
Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:01

Failed

Error:
Mailbox size 3.576 GB (3,839,757,890 bytes) exceeds target quota 2.3 GB (2,469,396,480 bytes).

Please do NOT tell me that I can NOT migrate a mailbox in excess of 2gb.  I can NOT believe that I am the first person to have this issue.  There has to be a work around.   Do you have any idea of how I can resolve this issue??   Many thanks for your speedy reply and help.

You have a mailbox limit set:

If you go to Organization Configuration and then highlight the "Mailbox Database"
Right click and go to Properties and then go the third tab along labelled "Limits"
From there you can remove the quotas or increase them to allow you too import the email into the mailbox.
