Restart the information store service - that should make things happier.

thansk for the comment alan. i just tried that and it didnt help. the user's mailbox is still stating that it is full although i restarted the information store. the problem is i dont want to restart the exchange server in the middle of the day just for exchange 2010 server to realize that the user has cleared up all of his or her messages form both the inbox as well as the deleted items folder. I basically want exchange to say user john has cleared his mailbox and his deleted items so he is now below the mailbox limit so I will allow him to send and receive email again.

Why not just increase the mailbox limits for the time being?

If you check the size of the mailbox in exchange it will still read as at the limit because of the deleted items retention policy (14days default).
Have the user log onto OWA and empty the deleted items folder from there.  (then look at the Recover deleted items to purge further. )

Or just raise the limit for the single user.

Set-Mailbox -Identity jsmith@contoso.com ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 293601280 -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false

This example raises the limit to 250MB for the single user.

Is Outlook complaining that the mailbox is still full despite the size limit being increased?

I have set my mailbox to 40Gb and Outlook is reporting a 2Gb limit!  So it seems there might be some issues that Microsoft need to fix.
