Hi All,

Ive changed a 'maxsendsize' for myself in exchange 2007. I need to know how to force my outlook to pickup on this new size limit. (Win2K8 domain)

I know everything is OK, because if I logon to another computer for the first time and start outlook, I get the new size limitation.

This should be easy but I just cant figure it out for the life of me.

I guess this should be updated in some time.

You may want to close outlook and delete the mail profile.

Outlook will pick the new settings the next time it starts.

Have you tried restarting the exchange server?

I guess also this will update itself in time, but I want it now.

I think deleting the profile will work also but I think then I will need to re-setup a whole bunch of things (hotmail connector settings, PST files, etc) and would rather aviod this.

I'm sure this is not an exchange issue, like I said if I logon from any other machine and setup a new profile I will get the new size limit.

Please also note, I dont actually need to send a large email through the system. At this stage I just need my local outlook to accept the new size limit and let me attach a large file. Outlook gets this limit from exchange

Please everyone, I dont need to send a large file through the system, it will never go because I have other limits in place that will prevent this from ever going.

I just need my local copy of outlook to see the new size limit and allow me to attach a large file to outlook without getting the "The attachment size exceeds the allowable limit" within oulook when trying to attach.

I guess when outlook first loads it possibly writes a reg key for this limit

Well it took a while, but the system seems to have sorted itself out now. When thinking about it, I am wondering if the delay was due to a DC replication needing to happen.

Either way, Im giving the points to "npsingh123" as I believe deleting the profile would have done the trick.
