How can I create custom NDR for exchange internal mail?

Thanks to all in advance for your help.

I am looking to decrease the limit on message size in my office as many of our users enjoy the age old pasttime of sending out 3 meg word files and clogging up our pipes. This is the particular NDR I would like to edit.  This limit is only for sending, not receiving.

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:      
      Sent:      2/10/2009 11:00 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      Doe, John on 2/10/2009 11:00 AM
            This message is larger than the current system limit or the recipient's mailbox is full.  Create a shorter message body or remove attachments and try sending it again.
            <exchange.com #5.2.3>

Thanks again!

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Exchange 2003 NDRs cannot be changed - the only one that can be adjusted is the message the user gets when their own mailbox is full. The message received by third parties cannot be changed.

Unfortunately I don't have a way to customize/modify the text in NDR messages in both Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003 Server. Actually, the NDR is defined in some RFC documentation as an Internet standard. Also, because Microsoft Exchange Server is a RFC-compliant product, the typical NDR messages are hard coded in Exchange Server.

To my knowledge, I know that we can change a .DLL file in Exchange 5.5 to create custom NDRs, but I was not aware of any .DLL files we can alter in Exchange 2000/2003 to customize the built-in NDR messages. Also, even in Exchange 5.5, Microsoft doesn't recommend users customize the built-in NDR message by modifying the .DLL files.
