Just upgraded to Exchange 2010 from 2003.  We are a forensic CPA firm and send/recieve lots of big attachments.  Having issues with email being bounced back.  Here is a sample code: #< (#5.2.3 smtp;550 5.2.3 RESOLVER.RST.RecipSizeLimit; message too large for this recipient> #SMTP#).

So after some investigation I did these two commands via the Exchange Managment Shell...FYI--LCMAIL is the name of our Exchange server

Set-ReceiveConnector -identity "LCMAIL" -maxmessagesize 40MB

Set-SendConnector -identity "LCMAIL" -maxmessagesize 40MB

Additionally, I contacted our ISP which is a cable company and the said the max attachment size is 20mb...so I figured that I would double it as shown above.

Then I did this command:
get-receiveconnector | select identity,maxmessagesize

Here's what was returned on screen
Identity                                             MaxMessageSize
LCMAIL\Default LCMAIL                               40mb
LCMAIL\Client LCMAIL                                 10mb

SO...HERE's my question:  what is "Client LCMAIL" and how can I change it from 10mb to 40mb...as I assume this is the culprit and reason why some of our clients are getting bounce-backs when sending large attachment(s) with email.  

Your insite and help would be most helpful...many thanks in advance.

Just getting back to your repsonse...many thanks for replying...and many thanks for the link, looks like the gold mine of all email limits!  Give me a few days to read and digest this.  Maybe I'm a space cadet, but you'd think that the programmers at Microsoft would have ONE convient place to make all limits...just a passing thought.  

FYI:  NO, I do NOT have a comlete setup...just one Exchange 2010 server with two other 2003 member servers, one of which is a domain controller.  

Again, many thanks...I will be back to you.
