Hi all,

I want the send and receive to be unlimited. Can I do that by disabling the send / receive limits OR do I need to set them to a maximum value, let's say i.e. : 40MB.

Try not to increase the limits more than 10MB
Do it only if needed and that too for specific users is best.

It may slow down your network
Larger the mail flow, larger will be your inboxes
takes long to deliver as well

You can do it by removing the limits but you also need to think about the ability of your user's.

I've had users in my organisation send emails too hundreds of people with attachments in excess of 100Mb.  They forget that just because we maybe able to send or recieve large emails that others don't ahve those open limit's.  It can mean when everything starts bouncing back from the reciever that everyone else suffer's.

Given a choice I wouldn't allow people to send more than about 15-20Mb.

There are a number of places you need to adjust message size limits in:
- Organization level, Global Settings
- SMTP Connectors
- Potentially individual users.
Have a look at this article, it shows exactly the various locations:

As say Nenadic there is at leat 3 places:
- Organization level, Global Settings, default values for message delivery
- Virtual SMTP Server, on Message sheet
 and also on the routing group, inside the config for the SMTP connector your are using to arrive your Virtual SMTP Server
