Open Exchange Management Console.

1. Expand Server Configuration

2. Click on Mailbox.

3. On the bottom pane of the window, you should have the First Storage Group (assuming you only have one for email)

4. Right-click on the Mailbox Database, and select Properties.

5. Click on the Limits tab. You can either bump the limits up or clear them entirely.

i did that and they are still getting clients saying taht they stry to send them a email and tey are beieng told that it is to big. what are teh stesp to take off all restrictions thanks

Oh, so it's OUTSIDE clients who are having the problem? Then that is a problem with the outside client email server, not yours. They probably have their own set of restrictions.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

they get a return mail that says that our server has a size limit where else can I chekc this

Well, that's local to the mailbox, might need to change the Global parameters. Let me check on that. Do you have any AV filtering that is doing attachment checking?

they have endpoint i could check that

Yup, check there as well.

two other things to check:

get-receiveconnector | list  (looking for maximum receive size, 10 MB on default Exchange 2007 no SBS)

get-transportconfig  (looking for maxreceivesize value)

How big are these messages by the way?
