Hello Experts;

I have a user who wants to send a large email, but he gets the following message back;

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

 

      Subject:             --------------------------

      Sent:                 12/07/2006 9:28 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      abc123@receipientsdomain.net.au on 12/07/2006 9:28 AM

            This message is larger than the current system limit or the recipient's mailbox is full.  Create a shorter message body or remove attachments and try sending it again.

            MSEXCH:MSExchangeIS:/DC=local/DC=Sunline:SUNLINESERVER

I checked the SMTP Connector and the box properties, and under CONTENT RESTRICTION the box marked "Allowed Sizes" is NOT ticked.

I am using the ISP SMTP Server, could it be the ISP that is rejecting the email?

Am I looking in the right place, or is there somewhere else that restricts the size of outbound emails?

If this is a problem with your server's settings, then you would change that in the Exchange System Manager > Global Settings > Message Delivery > Sending Message Size (which is probably set to 10240KB as the default).

If the file is not larger than that, then the problem is on the recipient's side.

Ahhh, thats where you do that :-) Yeah, the guy wants to send a 15 Meg Email. I told him he should reconsider, but what can you do, these users think nothing should be too much trouble :-)

Thanks Jeff.

Very unlikely that the recipient can receive something that large.
