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.

That depends.  Did you configure a global rule for a default mailbox size?  If this is just for one user do the following in the EMC (Exchange Management Console).

Open up EMC > Recipient Configuration > Mailbox > Target User > Properties > Mailbox Settings Tab > Storage Quotas > Properties

Here you will see the storage quotas.  If you have a mailbox database default you would uncheck that box and set your size limits manually.
