Exchange 2007 transport rule, exemt an email address from max send limits
Posted on 2009-04-09
I have recently installed Exchange 2007 SP1 and I have a Send Connector created on the Exchange 2007 server. I have not yet moved over any mailboxes to the new server.
By default, I know that the mail will prefer the new send connector.
A couple of days ago I set a maximum message size limit to be 25 MB. (it was set as the default until that time). Soon after that I received a call that somebody was having trouble scanning to email. I did some investigating and I found out that this person was using a scanner to send documents to their email address. I did notice that the attachment sizes were greater than 25 MB.
I disabled the maximum message size limit on the Send Connectors for the time being. The receive connectors for the new Exchange server still has a 25 MB limit on it, I haven't changed that. I don't think the receive connector will make a difference anyway.
The from address is HSCOPIER@TEST.COM This email address is not in my AD domain as a valid address.
I'm kind of surprised that it hadn't failed before with the default settings and then just started having issues right after I changed it to 25 MB.
I would like to create some kind of transport rule that says: Emails coming from this copier can exceed the max send limit. I went thru the Transport Rules wizard but I couldn't find any options to do what I'm trying to do.
How do I create a Hub Transport Rule to send email from the scanner to anybody and be exempted from the max send limit??
