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?

all the places you can set limits and 'who wins' when more than one is set:

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!
