Hi folks,

We are running Exchange 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2.

Can someone please remind me what the Powershell command is for checking the email sending size limits in place on a users mailbox is? And the PS command for setting it?

I have done it once before but I cant for the life of me remember or google for it again.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Here is the cmdlet to know the sending size limit only one command will do all.

Thanks for everyones suggestions.

suriyaehnop's answer contained the checking command I was looking for and best answered the checking part of my question. I was able to take what I needed from that powershell script in the link to do what I was asking about.

The simple command for checking that I couldn't remember is as follows.
get-mailbox "username" |ft name, maxsendsize

Open in new window


Is there a way to set the maxsendsize for a mailbox from the Powershell also?

I worked out the command I needed to set the send limit from the command line.

set-mailbox [username] -maxsendsize [send size in bytes]

Thanks folks.
