Exchange 2007 - Internal message size limit
Posted on 2011-02-17
Exchange 2007, standard setup.
Client called, and said he was having trouble sending a document with a large (32MB) attachment. I assumed he meant he was sending to someone outside the organization, so I checked the connectors, etc. on the Exchange server, and they were all at the default limit size (500MB).
It turns out though he was sending the email internally only (i.e. to his assistant). He was at his desk, using Outlook (he wasn't using OWA).
#550 5.2.3 RESOLVER.RST.RecipSizeLimit; message too large for this recipient ##
Is there another place where the size limit is set? Is there an 'angle' for Internal messages?
Helpful insight appreciated.
(I have already had the discussion with him about best practices, re: sending large emails, internal sending, etc.)
