Last Modified: 2013-12-19
I have a customer with a new installation of Exchange 2013.  I notice that there appears to be a size limit of both ingoing and outgoing mail for only 10 mb.

I have configured connectors with an accepted size of 2047 mb but this does still not work.

Anyone know where this can be configured?

Restart the Tranport service and the new settings should be adopted.

The are a few places this is defined. check the following.

Under hub transport at both the Organization and Server Configuration level, check under the connectors and the Maximum Message Size. This is most likely the issue.

Also check the specific users mailbox under Mail Flow Settings and Message Size Restrictions.

there is also a default 10mb limit at the org level

this will show how to change using either powershell or EAC
