A user, when trying to post a message to a public folder, recieved a pop-up with this error:

"Can't move the items.  A rule in this public folder prevents a message this large from being posted."

According to some sites I found, I checked where the size limit should be set, but there didn't appear to be one.  Where else should I look to resolve this error?

There are actually two levels of limit you should check (on Exchange 5.5):

The server level and folder level, the server level is at:
- Organization\ Site\ Configuration Container\ Servers Container\ Server\ Public Information Store \ General tab

The folder level is in the property settings on that specific folder.

Note: the server should be the one hosting the public folder (if you have multiple exchange servers in your org).

check these two paths:

Public Store default setting
- Organization\ Administration Groups Container\ Admin Group \ Servers Container\ Server\ Storage Group \ Public Foler Store - Properties, "limit" tab

Specific folder setting
- Organization\ Administration Groups Container\ Admin Group \ Folders \ Public folders \ individual folder - Properties

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

no limit boxes are checked in either of those locations.

Here is some more info that might shed some light: We have two Exchange servers running on different machines.  E2K3 on one and E2K on another.  The E2K3 was recently added to the existing E2K; the mailboxes were moved to the newer server, but the public folders still reside on the E2K server.  I had to check the second item in your post above on the E2K machine, because that is where the public folders are still, and, when I tried to check it on the E2K3 machine, I got the following error:

Would any of this have anything to do with it?

Go into IIS Manager on the E2K3 server and change WebDAV from prohibited to Allowed.  That should resolve the error you're seeing.

That error doesn't come up any more.  I will have the user try again to post their message that was previously denied and advise.
