Mulitple Exchange 2010 Send/Receive Limits

Hello Experts,


I want to set up a policy which can be applied to users to limit the size of each email they send/receive based on their requirements.

Eg: Policy for maximum of 5mb and a different policy for a maximum of 10mb, 15mb and 30mb.

I have looked on Exchange 2010 managemet console as well as online and know that this can be done globally (1 set of rules for maximum send/receive limit) as well as the mailbox level, but it seems like individual mailboxes will need to be changed to acheive this.  Also different receive connectors but I dont think that this is useful for this type of scenario.

If that is the case and multiple send/receive limits can only be defined at the mailbox level, is there a way to quickly deploy to multiple users (or even ad based groups) at once?

So the questions I have are:

1) Is it possible to sent mulitple send/receive limits and deploy change to users/groups?

2) Is there a way to change this at the mailbox level at a faster rate of one at a time (eg powershell scripting for mass users)?

Many thanks.

1. You can have a limit set on the mailboxes.

2. Yes, you can use Powershell. For example, get-mailbox -organizationalunit "ouname" | set-mailbox -MaxSendSize 10mb -maxReceiveSize 10mb

it is possible using scripts

1. Create a CSV file with all the usernames of all users whom you want to change message size - with heading for that column as UName
2. run the below powershell cmdlets

$users = import-csv "<Location of CSV>"
$users | foreach{set-mailbox -identity $_.UName -MaxReceiveSize <Size> -MaxSendSize <Size> -whatif}

Once output is what you want, remove -whatif and run the command

Hope that helps

Thanks for the quick responses  :)

So basically there is no way to set mulitple mailbox policies which can restrict  the send and receive limits...?

Solution not accurate because there was no definitive answer to the main question only answers which would potentially resolve.
