I setup a sendmail server and wanted to increase the size limit to 5mb when users sending out emails.
I changed the setting in the /etc/mail/ file to 5mb, but still unable to send mails larger than 1.5mb.:
# maximum message size
O MaxMessageSize=5000000

Os:Solaris 10.
I've also stop and start the daemon via svcadm disable and enale mehtod.

Getting this bounce messages:
This message exceeds the maximum message size allowed. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please make the message smaller -- by removing attachments, for example -- and try sending it again, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

Thanks in advance for your help.
