Hi Bill,
If you mean you would like to send a warning message to users
approaching their mailbox size quota, the settings are under your
mailbox store properties, limits. 

If you are asking to change the particular message that is sent to the
users, the simple answer is no, because it is hard coded.  

There is a tool however that will let you modify (at your own risk) the
alert.  The file that stores the system message is MDBSZ.DLL.  To edit
the file's resources, you'll have to run RLQUIKED.EXE from the Resource
Localization Toolset.
Available here:
Make sure to make a backup copy, replace the existing resource with your
own, and then restart Exchange info. Service.  Don't forget that
upgrades/service packs will/may overwrite the file. 

If you need more details let me know.

Good Luck,

Is there a way to customize the messages a user receives when the reach
mailbox quota. Nothing obvious is jumping out at me.
