Exchange Message Size limits....

All,

Am I going bonkers?  I'm just looking at this article by MS:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124345.aspx

In the table that describes 'User Limits' it clearly says that the default setting is "unlimited". And this means that a user can send/receive any size message.

In the paragraph just below this and headed "Order of precedence for message size limits", it says that, "One exception to this approach is the user limits. User level limits take precedence over other message size restrictions. Therefore, you can configure a user to exceed the default message size limits for your organization"

So.... by default in Exchange 2010/2013, a user can send/receive ANY size message.  IS this true?

I haven't done a clean install for some time :)

A user can only send & received based on their own message size limits by default, its easy enough to set a global or per user value.

Hello ScorchD,

Agreed.  I'm just surprised that is the case - by default.  As I said, I haven't installed a clean version for a while and am used to just seeing a limit set.  I'm currently on a site with a disgraceful setup and was looking to troubleshoot an issue.  

This place has various different limits set at various different points of the organisation but no users limits!  So the effect is that there is no limit. Crazy! :)

Thanks for your help.
