I have Exchage Server 2003 SP2 on Windows server 2003 Std.

I need to restrict the outgoing message size to only one recipient to 1 MB, while keeping all other outgoing message size to the same domain to 10MB.

Is there a way I can do that?

I know it is possible for a complete domain thru SMTP connectors. But I want to only user@domain.

There sure is,

Open up the user in ADUC, go to Exchange General tab, delivery restrictions.

You can set the sending limit to 1024 there, and they will only be able to send 1MB emails (and only that user will have this restriction)

The limit I want to set is for a user who will receive email from mydomain. What you suggest will affect a single user in mydomain.

Thanks.

Ahhh, I see, I misunderstood you.

Create a mail enabled contact for that address, then follow the same process as above for the one contact.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

redseatechnologies: I already did that, but users write the original email address to bypass the limit.

cjtraman: I need a costless solution.


Thanks.

That shouldn't matter, it should resolve automagically.

That is the way you do it, if it is not working because your users are somehow bypassing it, then you have a policy problem, and will either need to get management to discipline the users, or pay for a solution (such as above) to enforce it.

You are right, I didn't know that. Even if the user rights the email from his contacts (and not from the golbal cat) it will resolve automatically to the exchange contact.

Thanks for your help.
