SBS Exchange 2007: larger than the maximum acceptable message size error message
Posted on 2012-03-20
I am poping email on my exchange 2007 SBS server. Some user reported they couldn't receive some emails. Checked the event viewer and found the following message:
One or more messages (5) were left in the 'firstname.lastname@example.org' account on the POP3 server 'pop.xyz.com' because they are larger than the maximum acceptable message size (the largest message is 23393702 bytes). You can either connect to the POP3 account and retrieve or delete the messages manually, or increase the maximum acceptable message size in Exchange Server.
I went to to EMC, Organization configuration -> Hub Transport -> Global setting -> I unchecked the Max receive and send limits, also restarted the transport service, but I am still getting the same message....
