It has been approved to allow a user to be able to receive a large .pdf file and it is only for a temporary limited time.  The default attachment size in our Exchange Server is 10 MB.

How can I increase that for this user?  And then change it back to normal?  I am new to exchange and I used to know this; but, I do nto remember right now.  Please help.

Hi,

You can raise the limit on the database his mailbox resides, right click and choose properties for that database. I guess this raises the limit for all users in that database but if its for a short time only i'd do it.

And finally for a per user solution: using powershell: Set-Mailbox <mailbox> -MaxSendSize 10MB -MaxReceiveSize 10MB

Geia sou kai sena,

Exactly, I'd say go for the exchange shell command but you can use the gui if you like.

The connector limits i think must match or exceed the user limits or else the email will travel from the user to the server and then it will stay there if the connector refuses to send it over to the next hop because of its size.
