  We run into this situation from time to time.  The "solution" that has worked 
consistently to get mailboxs working correctly is to 
1) Delete the user's mailbox, then 
2) Reconnect mailbox with the same user.  
  Mind you, we can do this as our mailbox store's "Keep deleted mailboxes" is 
set to 30 days.

Subject: [exchangelist] Mailbox full?

We are running Exchange 2003.  This user can't receive messages because it 
shows his mailbox is full.  He doesn't have a very large mailbox compared to 
others that can receive large attachments.  In exchange under Message delivery 
Defaults I set the Receiving message size to No limit, and restarted the 
services.  No luck. Under his account in AD Exchange General, Storage Limits, I 
set the Use mailbox store defaults.  It was set to 45000 on the issue warning 
and 75000 on the Prohibit send. Any ideas?  Below is the NDR it get a copy of.  

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

The message could not be delivered because the recipient's mailbox is full.
