Apply Exchange 2007 mailbox limits

Hello experts.

I'm running Exchange 2007 with no mailbox limits. I will be applying limits next Tuesday morning (1.2 gigs a warning, 1.7 gigs can't send, 2.0 gigs can't send or receive). For my users over these limits, will Exchange issue these warnings after these limits have been applied? I've done some looking on the internet but haven't been able to find an answer.

They will lose their send/receive permissions and I believe be issued the warning to archive or delete emails to meet your requirements.

So, to comfirm, once the limits are applied, despite not having any limits, warnings will be issued?

I've been working with my users now for a little more than 2 months to prepare them for this change by teaching and applying auto archiving. I have only about 10% out of compliance.

Yes - After applying the limits the users will get warning once the maintenance process run, however, though over there send/receive limits will be affected once the store processes the change, there is also a cache involved, but they will be impacted if over the limits within a couple of hours and subsequently the warnings will be issued.
