Hi
I have a new installation for around 40 users:
Win2003/Exch2003 with latest service packs and patches installed.

I have had a couple of issues recently where users get a message when trying to
send a large attachement, in this case it was 9mb.  It says that there is a limit
on size? I have not put any limits on the server at all. What's weird is the user only
a few days ago managed to send files over 9mb?

Are there any limits set elswhere other than with exchange system mangager?

Can be set/fixed in various places


1. Global settings: In Exchange Manager Global Settings > Message Delivery > right click it > Properties
> Defaults > Check Send/Receive and Recipient limits

2. Connector Setting: (May not be using connectors) Administrative Groups > First Admin Group > Routing
Group > Routing Group Name > Connectors > Right Click > Properties > Content Restrictions > Allowed Sizes
> Check the Only Messages less than box.

3. SMTP Virtual Server Settings: Administrative Groups > First Admin Group > Routing
Group > Servers > Servername > Protocols > SMTP > SMTP Virtual Server > Right Click > Properties > Messages.

RESTART EXCHANGE SERVIVES TO MAKE TAKE EFFECT

If that wont fix the problem it may be set on a user level

Open Active Directory Users and Computers > go to user properties > Exchange General > Delivery Restrictions
