Requested #550 5.3.4 SMTPSEND.OverAdvertisedSize

I am running Microsoft Exchange 2007. And for some reason I cannot send attachments above 10MB regardless of the file type even though the limit is set to 20MB.
 
I cannot work out why!
 
Please help

You have mailbox db limits, user limits and connect and recieve limits. You need to modify all of them.

Ian, can you please explain?
 
The limits are set to 20MB. I should still be able to send a 10MB file

Surely it cannot be the Receive as I am trying to send

Receive is disabled anyway

IanMurphyCommented:
hmm, well, since things seem to check out - what exactly is happening? When you say you can't send what is occurring... step by step. If you receive back a message what is the text of the message?

I notice you have a smart host connector. Could it be that your smart host provider has a 10mb limit?

I've just noticed that the subject of the posting contains your problem - I should pay more attention.

I had forgotten about the transport config which is mentioned in this article:

get-transportconfig | fl *

I've just checked on a couple of exchange servers and the default limit is indeed 10mb.

Probably right. Try mailing a 10mb file using vmailer and sending directly to the smarthost provider.
