Attachment Size Limits in OWA

Posted on 2011-10-03
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
When an upload of a large file is attempted in OWA (for Exchange 2010) the error message "The page was not displayed because the request entity is too large" displays. The web.config file has already been edited to a sufficient size and made sure that the Max. message size in the Exchange Management Console match the size in web.config.
