I'm trying to find a way to go through our exchange server and delete all message attachments grater that a certain size.  I know I can open the email and select remove attachment but I am hopeing there is an automated process I can do on the back end.  

Is there a way to accomplish this?

    There is no such tool or way to remove attachment from database for all user. You can user the archive feature.

    Accepted Solution

    agreed with above, there is no way to filter individual emails on the server side. you can set your email size limits on the server to prevent this from happening in the future (and make sure the server can send the NDR's to the sender, so they are aware the file size is too big and get the rejection notice). For your receive connector, You'll need to go into EMC, Server Configuration->Hub Transport, and in the receive connectors tab, right click on your receive connector, choose properties, and edit the "Maximum Message Size"
