I am getting this error an incoming message. I have changed the size limit everywhere I can think of and still am getting this error. Please tell me in the GUI where to change this. If it can only be changed in the Shell please give you can give the the complete line for 20MB MAX.

#550 5.3.4 ROUTING.SizeLimit; message size exceeds fixed maximum size for route ##

I have been through many pages on Google search and done everything on those pages that looked like it would work and I am still having this issue so please do not simply send me a link of how to increase message size on Exchange 2007.

for internal mail flow settings run the following cmdlet:-

Set-TransportConfig -MaxReceiveSize 20MB
Set-TransportConfig -MaxSendSize 20MB

for external mail flow
Get-ReceiveConnector | Set-ReceiveConnector -MaxMessageSize 20MB
Get-SendConnector | Set-SendConnector -MaxMessageSize 20MB

hope it will work for you..

Is there anything I need to restart in order to make this effective?

I guess I already had these set like this because I got this massage on all of the commands.

WARNING: The command completed successfully but no settings of 'Windows SBS Internet Send XXXXXXX' have been modified.

its means your server is already configure to  20MB send/ receive limit. Check out your mail size for which you are getting bounce mail. That mail might be exceeding from 20MB

I am sending it from an outside account it has a 14MB attachment. Outlook on the sending side also reports the size as 14MB.

is your mx record directly points to your HT ?

Author

Commented:
What is the HT? I think he MX record is fine. It is just an attachment over 10MB that is getting bounced but I am willing to look at anything.

Hub Transport or I meant to say is your mx  point to your exchange server or your are using any smart host ?

The MX record is pointing to the exchange server directly.

which anti spam application you are using  for your exchange. If you are using Microsoft Forefront Security for your exchange. Then you also must have to define size limit in Microsoft forefront security.

Trendmicro. I have it running on several SBS installation I have never had to make adjustments for other installations but I will look.

I checked and there is no Attachment blocking set nor anti-SPAM set.

Also check if you have set limit for that particular user as you are telling all settings are seem ok.

if you don't have any issue then I can personally check settings on your server you can contact me on

try one trick also to make sure your exchange receiving size. Telnet your exchange server from outside network and issue the ehlo command and your exchange will issue the receive size limit. Screen shot is also attached
