How do change size restriction for accepted EMail Messages?

I have a client who is having difficulty with a new Exchange 2007 Server.  He is attempting to relay messages from a UNIX box to Exchange Users.  Anything over 4 MB gets stuck in the queue.  We've already applied the following change:

Set-TransportConfig -MaxReceiveSize 10MB

Didn't seem to help.  Is there somewhere else in Exchange that needs to be updated?  In addition, what's the proper way to configure Exchange to allow internal hosts to relay mail through Exchange both to Exchange users and Internet users?

Thanks!

You can set the size in your receive and send connectors; just right-click, choose properties, and enter in a value (in KB) where it says "Maximum message size". If this is a particular user having problems, check the "Quota settings", by going into the user mailbox -> properties -> Mailbox Settings tab, then Storage Quota properties. If there is no limits set there, check the Storage Group limits, that may be your issue.

Hope this helps!

Was unable to find a Maximum Message Size option under the Receive Connectors.

User limits are set to 20 MB, which is not a problem.

If you go into the properties of your receive connector, you'll see on the General tab "Maximum message size in KB". Also, you may want to check the "Global" settings...see this article:

Let me know how it goes...
