create a Policy on the Exchange System Manager.

Under Administrative Groups > System Policies. create a Mailbox Store Policy.

Make sure all users your want to increase the Mailbox will be in that Store or you can add all the Store in the Group.

I don't really recommend giving all person a 2GB Mailbox, not unless resources are not an issue.

Before Increasing mailbox you can suggest user to go for PST option, As most of users dont use that much space and you can save storage space too. IF they want then you can go for specific person who is looking for more space more than 2GB.
