The 2gb limit is actually a GUI limit, rather than a physical limit.
Therefore the easiest way is to simply remove the limit.

Ideally you should move to something more modern - Exchange 2003 is no longer supported and Windows 2003 is out of support in July.

even though you somehow manage to setup a mailbox more than 2gb it is going to be your pain later.
I have seen lots of issues even for the pst files more than 2gb for exchange 2003, mailbox owner/user will be in a lot of trouble and frequently face issues like outlook hanging or mail corruption or something weird than that.
you may simply ask user to maintain pst files of 2gb size if you have limitation to go for new exchange version to make your life easy.
