We have an Exchange 2003 Enterprise server that currently has a 10 MB limit on e-mails but the Company board wants to increase the limits on our e-mail size.  I warned them about disk space, mailbox size and corruption, WAN performance and the repercussions of increasing the size but they feel that the whole world does not have any limit on their e-mail sizes.  I have always managed Exchange servers so I am unfamiliar with different options.  What other options are out there for a small Microsoft Network on a T1 line that will allow no limitations on e-mail size and any links please?  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

Keep in mind, Content conversion happens when Exchange converts an internet/MIME message into MAPI/Exchange format, and vice versa. Content conversion generally increases the message size - roughly by 30%. If you set a maximum message size of 10Mb., and wonder why a 9 Mb. attachment didn't make it through, consider the content conversion overhead, as also message headers (which are computed along with the DATA portion of the message to calculate the message size).
