Yep, as per SP2 Release Notes:

For the Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition, the hard-coded licensing
database size limit has been increased from 16 GB to 75 GB. The
administrator will be able to set a protective database size limit
(prevent unintentional database size growth). The default value will be
18 GB in SP2 for Standard Edition and the default of 18 GB can be
overwritten by editing the "Database Size Limit in GB" registry key.

And it is explained here:
