I have a customer with a new Small Business Server 2011 with 50 users.  Clients runs Windows 7 pro with Office 2010.

Yesterday it has been brought to my attention that there appears to be a size limit for both receive and send for only 10 mb.
I can confirm that if you check limits local on the SBS both users + EMC connectors this limit is either removed or set to approx. 1GB.

What am I missing here?
Is there another setting I have to adjust?

Your help will be appreciated :-)

10Mb is the default setting for SBS 2011 for Send and Receive.

You do realize that if you end up with 2 people sending 1Gb files it'll cripple your exchange server? You'd be better off setting up an FTP server instead.
