Hi to all,
I've an Exchange server 2007 sp3.

My account should receive, a message of 30MB from Internet

Now I've read these articles:

http://exchangepedia.com/2007/09/exchange-server-2007-setting-message-size-limits.html
 
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb684892(EXCHG.80).aspx

but I not receive yet the mail of 30 MB, but I receive mail of 10 MB (default settings)

I've set the value 30720 Kb in Transport and Connectors (send and receive) properties, NOT in User Properties

I receive always mail with error "Message size limit exceed"

Thank for your help

Since you've placed in the SBS Zone, I'll assume you have SBS 2008 which includes Exchange 2007
The SBS Product Team Blog includes an excellent walk through on this

while the artilce was from the SBS team (and your question is in the SBS zone) there is not SBS specific in the blog post.  I'd encourage you to give it a look and see if there something you may have overlooked

I can see that it was placed in the SBS zone by a MOD..not sure why

But again, nothing in the link in my post is really unique to SBS...it will show you all the places where the message size must be changed

very strange...now i've set :
MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup   : 0
MaxDumpsterTime                  : 0

in this way it's disabled

Before it was setted to default value (18MB and 7 days).

18MB email size are received, but 30MB email size aren't received....returns back always this error:

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 552 552 Unable to queue message (5.3.4 Message size exceeds fixed maximum message size) (state 18).

Any suggestions ?

It's not the dumpster size...it's the receive connector or rather I should say...one of your receive connectors is still set to 10MB

[PS] C:\>Get-ReceiveConnector | fl MaxMessageSize


MaxMessageSize : 10MB

MaxMessageSize : 30270KB

MaxMessageSize : 30270KB

MaxMessageSize : 30270KB

If the problem is the default connector, disabled (set to 10MB), why are received 18MB email size ?

Is your mail being handled by any third party service for anti spam or antivirus?  In other words, your mail goes to another company first...gets scanned, then comes to you?

NO. Mail flow is direct From ISP (I am using Google for the tests) to MyCompany. During the tests, the antispam and antivirus , for the mail flow, are temporarily disabled.

I think it's still the one receive connector that you have disabled...any reason it can't be deleted
or set the size to the same as the others
