Message Limit Size


I am running Exchange 2003 with Window Server 2003 Enterprise Edition. I already setup the limit message size in the Exchange Server. But when I login to the OWA, I didnt get any notification about my message which is over the default message size. Anything I miss out?

did you send the message to someone else on the same server or to on the internet ?
Also did you stop and restart the IMC service(MSExchangeIMC) when you made the change?
Dear sajuks,

in Ex 2003 there ISN´T an IMC-Service only an SMTP-Service

Hi sainyee,

please explain what you doing. Do you edit an new mail, or send, or receive? Please tell me where you set the Size Limit....


There are two places you can set message size limits. First, go under the ESM, rt click Message Delivery, select properties and look at the defaults tab. Also, check the properties tab on the SMTP virtual server, messages tab and check the limits in there.
