Exchange 2003 Email Attachment limits not working.
Posted on 2007-03-19
Running Exchange 2003 SP2 on Windows 2003 SP1 Cluster Servers.
When we first setup Exchange we had a limit of 10MB for sending and receiving attachments. This was set under Global Settings--> Message Delivery-->
So due to the increase in size of the exchange database files. I lowered the limit to 5MB for sending only. I left the "receive" to 10MB
Now users whose emails that are coming from hotmail with 8MB are generating NDRs:
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.
I even took increased the limits to 10MB on this one user. It still doesn't work.
1) Do I have to restart something for it to take place?
2) Do I have to set the SMTP's Message Size limits?
Currently he box is unchecked for both "Limit message size to (KB)" and "Limit Session size to (KB):
