In AD if you go to the exchange General Tab. You go into the deliver restrictions button it has the option to us default limits for this particular user.  Where do you set these limits at?  I thought it was in the system manger under Global settings then message delivery and defaults. I changed these settings and it overrode any settings I had setup for the specific user in AD delivery restrictions tab. I was set to be able to send 15mb or recieve 15mb in AD. When I changed  the global settings default, I was no longer able to send large attachments.

For Sending Size Limit, the per-user limits on the Active Directory user object take precedence over globally defined Sending Size Limit values.

My Global limits were taking precedence over my per user sendin limit in AD though..  Because what I was trying to do is Set up a global  limits to be sending  512mb and receiveing 2mb for all General Employees. But for Managers and officers I was specifically setting up a per user sending limit of  sending 5mb and receiving 5mb. I had unlimited because I am the network admin. But when we tried to send messages It it was using the global limits instead of using the per user limits we setup.  I had it set up this way when we had exchange 5.5, when I migrated I thought the defaults migrated but they didn't only the per user settings did. So yesterday I found the global defaults and changed them. When I did that my users were not able to receive large file attachments that they should have been able too.

The rule of thumb with restrictions is to restrict down, not open up. The global limits should always be the maximum that you want anyone to have/use.
If you need to make bulk changes then you have a couple of options.
If you have Enterprise edition, then you could make use of the additional information stores and databases to have different restrictions.
If you are on standard edition, then use a tool like admodify.net to make the changes to the users that need to have something different.

Okay, I guess that would make sense on how it working. Kind of the opposite of the way exchange 5.5 worked.

So  I will have to go into every individual AD and set the restrictions to what I want for send and receive then.
