Question on behalf of a friend.

I'm trying to figure out what the Microsoft recommended Exchange 2003 SMTP connector limit is or if there even is one.  I did some searching trying to find it and the only recommendation I could find was the MS recommended global setting of 10 mb.  I'm kind of sure MS would recomend a SMTP connector limit be smaller, but I'm not sure.

    Microsoft do not make any recommendations of that kind. There will be the default settings and that is all.
    I presume you mean message size limits, as it isn't clear apart from your reference to 10mb.
    Exchange 2007 has a default limit of 30mb now, but going above 10mb isn't really a good idea. It isn't what you can accept, but what other sites have a limit set to.
