Exchange 2010 - Mail Tips Attachment Size

Hi All-

We run an Exchange 2010 no message size limit configuration. That’s what the boss wants so it’s not going to change.

Is it possible to configure a mail tip to point out a large attachment size (say 10MB or greater) is attached without having limits configured in Exchange? If so,  how?

Thanks

the mail tips pick the attachment size limit up from the system defaults so unless you have a limit then it won't be able to to it

you can try these reg keys on the client side to see if the make outlook think about it

Do you have mailbox limits?

Personally, I'd speak to your boss and talk some sense into him.

You've got to think about the implications of what you have configured. Space required for storage, backups, file version control (without limits users have a method of bouncing files around) etc.

But also I think there are few companies out there allowing more than 10MB attachments (for a reason!) so if one of your users tries to send to them, its not gonna work, and they aren't necessarily likely to understand why, when they can send the same huge file to Bob in accounts.

No mailbox limits either. It's not up for discussion.

you have probably made him aware of the risks of both (just to cover you own ass)

some send receive limits would be sensible as the potential to kill you internet line dead is reasonable.

One other possible way is to set up a general Mailtip

you will probably have one for "This recipient is external to your organisation"

you could amend that one and add something like

"don't add huge attachments....."
