Changing mailbox notification text

May I change the text that advises that an Exchange mailbox is over its limit? I need to change this feature because I don't use Personal Folders in my company, for example.
This was not possible in all versions of Exchange up to Exchange 2003. It is now possible in Exchange 2003 using post-SP3 rollup and in Exchange 2003 SP1. In both cases, you'll need to use Jason Nelson's sample code and accompanying instructions as discussed on the Microsoft Exchange Product Group's blog.

Essentially, the solution involves blocking Exchange from sending default quota notifications, enabling message delivery for custom messages to mailboxes that are over-quota, exposing quota limits through a change to the store interface and installing a new service to check mailbox quotas and generate a customizable message.
