Hi All,

What is the real world best practice/recommended maximum outgoing limit for exchange 2003.

Microsoft says 30MB, I currently have 20MB in place.

I do not believe email should be used for transferring large amounts of data, FTP is a practical replacement. We run a true 2MB/2MB link

Am i out of touch? Our mother company has theirs set to 100 and i am resisting pressure to change it for performance and security (internal and external) reasons.

Comments welcomed.

Most ISP's limit message size to 10mb max for sending. Exchange server is usually higher because it is used internally and you most likely will have local access.  Typically i would set the max message size to 10mb. Some carriers go as low as 5mb which i think is too low.

I agree with 446n nowadays the most common size is around 10Megs

Microsoft doesn't accept attachments at all, you should always use FTP to send them files
