Hi, how could i set the message limit (send and receive) to 100mb? I have tried all possible solutions but Outlook still cant send more than 10mb. Is there some simple way to do this? Is there one global settings i could set that also set the outlook and owa limit? Why issnt there any GUI to do this in?

    Is the size limit set per user, as per in a policy in AD?

    The CMDLet GET-Mailbox identity <user> | List show the mailbox details and the MaxSendSize and the MaxReceiveSize

    also might be worth running gpupdate to force out the new policy. Not sure if Exchange makes use of Group Policies, but can't hurt to run gpupdate (simply start -> run... and then type gpupdate and press ok)
