Is there a way to stop Exchange 2003 SP2 from sending out any "Your mailbox is over its size limit" email. We do not want the email message, as this server is in our Test environment only.

Yes.  You need to modify the settings under the user's AD properties, on their Exchange general tab, then Storage Limits.  See screenshots on this page http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2003/management-administration/Set-Size-Limits-Messages.html

Simply have the Quota removed from Database and Users if any

hmm ... the story is like this, I have a Test Exchange 2003 server which contains some test email users.. I want to limit the users to only receive emails and not sent any emails via OWA. So I have set all users mailbox quota to 0 so they cannot send any email. But the problem it is sends out "Your mailbox is over its size limit" email.

If you have another way of doing this ... please share with me .. .thanks.

Then instead use the Mailsize limit for receiving to 0 instead of playing with Quota
