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

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.
