We have a mixed environment of exchange 2003 / 2007. We are having a strange issue. when i try sending email with message size >10MB from exchange 2003 to exchange 2007, it fails and i get NDR with 5.2.3 status. however, when i send the same email the other way, it gets delivered. It only happens with messages >10MB. i have changed the setting of exchange 2007 at organization level, receive connector level and user mailbox level to receive emails upto 30 MB in size. Also, i have changed the settings on exchange 2003  at administrative group > Protocols >SMTP virtual server level to allow 30 MB of email to go through. however, sending emails of size > 10 MB from exchange 2003 to 2007 still fails. i have rebooted the information store and still its the same. i enabled diagnostic logging on exchange 2003 and still could not find anything concrete. I have observed that email never reaches exchange 2007 server. Another observation, mails >10 MB flows without issues within exchange 2003 mailboxes and so is for exchange 2007. Please let me know what am i missing.

Have you looked at (in exchange 2007):
organization configuration - Hub Transport - Global Settings - Transport Settings?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

OK. it seems that you have checked most, but just to be sure I will mention that there are several places to set limits on exchange 2007.

Thanks for your help. Problem has been resolved. I forgot to start the transport service after making these changes.  -:)
