Dear experts,

I would like to create a rule in exchange. When someone from another company sends a attachments (email) > 10MB. that user needs to receives a rebound message. with "message is undeliverable."

The exchange version is 2007.

I allready add the following rules in the exchange manager shell

"set-transportconfig -maxsendsize 10900000"
"set-transportconfig -maxreceivezie 10900000"

the first one seems to work. the second one also works but neighter the sender or the receiver get's a rebound message.

What can i do to imform outsiders that our exchange server doesn't accept message > 10MB?
