Hey,
          One of my clients is having this problem.  He tries to add a sender to his junk list and he gets this error.  "Unable to add to the server Junk E-mail List, you are over the size allowed on the server." Ive read things saying that the list that you make in Office itself is useless and to put a mail filter before the exchange server, and ive also read that you can change the registry key to make the list larger.  I want ot put a filter in but i would like to edit the registry for a temporary solution until i get the mail filter working, could someone tell me how to edit the registry key for this?  Ive attached a Screen shot of the error incase anyone was wondering.

By default the limit is 512 KB however if you want to increase this limit then:

Registry key: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\ParametersSystem

Value: Max Extended Rule Size
Type: DWORD
Data: maximum size, in bytes, you want to allow for the junk e-mail rule

Do you think i have to restart the server for this to take effect? or maybe just restart exchange?
