Hi

Apart from setting the limits on mailbox size and attachments, educate ur
users about the real usage of mailing server. Tell them how to archive old
items, how to retrieve on their own. When someone complains about the size,
there is question, which could be asked:

How do you manage when there is no space on ur table? Do u get a bigger
table or do u move items to some other place? Mail server is also like a
table.

1) Set a reasonable amount
2) Show them how to properly manage their mailbox. The built-in
Mailbox Cleanup Tool is great. Email storage is for emails, not large
attachments; have them save attachments to your file system.
3) Encourage them not to keep joke emails with large attachments
