Can attachment size limits be applied to a specific mailbox database?

I would like to have the ability to receive attachments larger than my organization settings currently allow.  The idea is to create another mail store which will hold a handful of newly created email accounts that departments could use to accept larger attachments than their personal account allows.

It sounded like a great idea, but I can't find a way to bypass the top level limits to allow the larger attachments to either those specific addresses or database.  The only other way I can see to achieve the same results would be to open up the top level limits and then restrict the current mailboxes individually to the current numbers.  

Am I overlooking something?

Thanks for any insight.

You should be able to set the receive limit on a per mailbox basis - otherwise it looks to the default polity for limits.  Though the way you suggested opening the top level limits would work too.

Thanks for your response!

Agreed, the limits can be set per mailbox.  The problem is that if the organizational transport settings prohibit receiving attachments at say, over 10MB, then allowing a mailbox to accept a 50MB file becomes moot.  It will never have the opportunity to apply the limit since the message would be rejected before reaching the mailbox.

It looks as though the only way to accomplish this task would be to open the transport rules and apply the individual mailbox limits.  It doesn't appear as though Exchange has the capability to allow for the capabilities I had envisioned.

Check default policy for limits. Yes apply transport rules for individual mailbox limits.

Transport rules can be created on a Hub Transport or an Edge Transport server. Both server roles have many common predicates and actions, but some predicates and actions are exclusive to each transport server role.
