Outside your network, then set:

The global setting is set to 5 MB.
Because of this setting, users in the Exchange 2003 organization can send/receive messages that are a maximum of 5 MB

Now for internal messages:
" The Exchange SMTP connector is set to 3 MB, and have this connector be for internal mail

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

you could make an smtp connector for *@yourdomain.com  to use the exchange server, or put the limitation on the smtp virtual server instead.

er this is 2003, so instead I mean routing group, but I think placing it on the virtual server would work and be less confusing.
