Using Group Policy to restrict max message size in Exchange

Hi Experts,

I may need to restrict the maximum size of emails for certain groups of users. For obvious reasons I'd like to do this with GPOs if possible.

Can this be achieved easily? Would I need custom ADMs or do they already exist? Seems like quite a straightforward request so I figure it can't be that hard.

Thanks!

Restricting mail storage

Mailbox quotas (Storage Limits) are set on the mailbox stores at either 400MB or 2GB and should
not be ovewritten by the user object. Creating or moving a mailbox into the appropriate mailbox
store is the way to assign quotas.

Hi Merete, thanks for the post,

I should have been more specific. What I'm looking to do is limit the size of individual emails that people can send, as in AD Users & Computers - User - Exchange General - Sending message size .

I'd like to be able to restrict certain groups of users, in specific OUs, to only send 5mb emails for example.
