When a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 mailbox or a Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server mailbox reaches its size limit, a message that resembles the following may be sent to the mailbox from the Exchange system administrator account:
Microsoft has released a software update that includes a new feature that lets you change the default behavior so that mailbox warning messages are not sent from the Exchange system administrator account. By default, warning messages are sent from the Exchange system administrator account to warn the user that the mailbox has surpassed the warning size limit or the size limit. The mailbox size limit is specified on the Exchange General tab for a mailbox-enabled user in the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.
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.

After you install the latest service pack, you must perform the steps that are described in the "After you install the software update" section later in this article.

After you install the software updateWarning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
Note The steps that are described in this section apply to both Exchange Server 2003 and to Exchange 2000 Server. If you are using Exchange Server 2003, you must install Exchange Server 2003 SP1 before you follow these steps.
After you install this software update, you must create the Disable Quota Messages registry entry for each mailbox store on the Exchange Server 2003 computer or on the Exchange 2000 Server computer. You do this so that mailbox warning messages are not sent from the Exchange system administrator account. When you create the Disable Quota Messages registry entry for a mailbox store, the warning message is not sent to the mailboxes in that mailbox store. If you do not want warning messages to be sent to more than one mailbox store, you must add the Disable Quota Messages registry entry to each registry subkey that represents a mailbox store.
For example, if you have two mailbox stores on your Exchange 2000 Server computer, you must create the Disable Quota Messages registry entry in the
Private-<First Mailbox Store GUID>subkey. Then, you must also create the Disable Quota Messages registry entry in the
Private-<Second Mailbox Store GUID>subkey.
To create the Disable Quota Messages registry entry, follow these steps:
