A user was getting a space warning message from the Exchange server to tell him that his mailbox was nearly full.  I have increased the default mail limit to get past this.  However he still receives the message.  The thing is, it recognizes that the limit has been increased but still delivers the warning.

It takes anything up to 2 hours for the setting to kick in without intervention from you, or you can restart the Information Store service.

If you can wait - I would.

I changed it last Friday and the user got a message this morning.

Is this SBS 2011 or Exchange 2010 on it's own?

Okay - weird.  What settings are on the Mailbox?

Can you screen dump the Storage Quotas page please?

It's ok, I'm an idiot.  I changed the limits but not the warning threshold.
I've changed that now and it's fine.

Aha!  Good stuff.  Sounded like something along those lines.

Thanks for the points.
