How to find mailbox size allocated to an outlook user.


we are using outlook 2003 and exchange server 2010 in our organisation, and all the outlook clients are MAPI clients, actually one of the user is not able to receive mails coz his mailbox size has increased. I wanted to check on the server side that how much mailbox size is allocated to him and how much he is actually using in his outlook 2003. Thanks
