    You want to configure mailbox quotas on the Mailbox store.

      There are a few answers to this, you could add another mailbox cluster, you could stop users from storing so much email (as recommended by Virtual) , you could setup an archiving solution.
      You question is fairly broad without defining a bit more about your business goal.
      cheers

          I would start here:
          http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb124521.aspx

          You can team the public NIC but not the private (heartbeat) ones.
          Make sure you buy good servers and especially good storage.
          Update the servers to the latest patches/firmware and drivers before hand and then google CCR clsuter deployment. petril.co.il and msexchange.org are good starting points obviously along with microsoft.com!
