For some reason I am getting this message bounced back when a a large message is sent to a customers SBS 2008 server

Have double checked the receive connector settings and thats set for 30MB on each on the connectors and the maximum per mailbox is set to unlimited.

Have checked against this article

http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2008/10/28/how-do-i-change-message-size-limits-in-exchange-2007.aspx

Was working til recently (not sure when it stopped working)

Anyone got any ideas?

The receive connector is only one spot there are several spots you need to change.

This will give you some ideas.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

You are checking on the Receivers server and not yours yes? And of course the message IS under 30MB yes?

Message is coming from customers server

Test message Im sending is about 25MB

Just done a reboot of server instead of restarting transport service. Dont think it will make any difference but at least shows the customer I am doing something

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
