Change Mailbox size limit message

We have an Exchange 2003 server.  We have mailbox size limits set for user's mailboxes.  When the user reaches their limit, they receive the message below.  I would like to change the wording of that message.  How can I do that?

This is what they receive now:

Your mailbox has exceeded one or more size limits set by your administrator.
Your mailbox size is 189880 KB.
Mailbox size limits:
        You will receive a warning when your mailbox reaches 175000 KB.You may not be able to send or receive new mail until you reduce your mailbox size.
To make more space available, delete any items that you are no longer using or move them to your personal folder file (.pst).
Items in all of your mailbox folders including the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders count against your size limit.
You must empty the Deleted Items folder after deleting items or the space will not be freed.
See client Help for more information.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no easy way to do this in Exchange 2003. It can be done, but if memory serves it involves rewriting a DLL file. While this would eventually work, any subsequent update that is applied, or any other change that is made, will very likely revert any changes.

The tool you would need is RLQuikEd, and it is part of this package:

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/RLTOOLS.EXE

The file that would need changing is MDBSZ.DLL (in "%programfiles%\Exchsrvr\bin").

I will see if I can give you some further information should you want to try and proceed, but I have to look and see if we have a working Exchange 2003 box anywhere.

EDIT:

OK, so, yes. All you need to do is create a copy of the DLL file in case of issues, then run RLQuikEd, load the DLL file and you will see all the text information there. Rewrite any messages you want, then save the DLL and restart Exchange services and/or reboot.

Keep in mind that this could cause problems and you also want a copy of the DLL outside of Exchange (both original and modified), so in case something gets updated, you can either put it back or restore it.

Needless to say this is unsupported by Microsoft.

I'm sorry I didn't reply earlier.  Once I saw your answer and considered the ramifications, I decided that the unsupported solution would not be in the best interest of the client.  I was hoping the text was somewhere where it could be easily modified and not put the system or client at risk.
Thanks very much for your response.  Even though I did not pursue it further, the information you provided was exactly what I was looking for.
