I went in and changed the maximum allowed message size and it is still not letting me send a message larger then 10 megs. Do I need to reboot the exchange server for this to take effect?

 Thanks,

I set it to no limit for a temporary basis. I went into global settings then message delivery. What service do I need to restart? And if so will it kick people off of exchange?

if you bounce system attendant this should definitely fix it. this will have the usual ramifications.

yes, briefly. if you look at the other services that are dependent on system attendant, or try this is a lab environment, you should be able to see that the information store service will need to be restarted with system attendant.
