Exchange 2010 Message Size Limits

I have Exchange 2010,
- Global Transport set max receive/send to 20MB
- Default Receive Connector to 10MB
- Send Connector to 10MB

Why Internal user able to send an email more than 10MB?. From my understanding, internal will be received by Hub Receive Connector from Mbx server, if this a case then the email will be rejected.

Which one take precedence?

When I did message tracking log, the mail was transferred thru any Receive Connector.

I understand that when user send the email from Outlook, the email will be at Outbox, store.exe will take the email from Outbox and put on submission on Hub Transport. Does this process not require Receive Connector?

if yes, then Receive Connector is not process internal? if so, why Default/Client receive connector exist at 1st place.

For external email, it is being process by Receive Connector, right

This keep confusing me.

Ticked Transport Limit. So which is take precedence?

Internal mail not being by receive connector then Transport will apply right.

External email it will apply by receive connector's limit, right?

Why Client/Default Receive exist for 1st place?

Also from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996395(v=exchg.141).aspx

By default, the Receive connectors that are required for [b]internal mail[/b] flow are automatically created when the Hub Transport server role is installed

Open in new window


From this statement, i understand that internal mail still being process receive connector?

Exchange 2010 transport servers require Receive connectors to receive messages from e-mail clients

Open in new window


Kindly explain to me.

Global is settings for HUB server. ITs role for Deliver mails in server. Send and recvie connectors are for communicating with out world.


so yes internal mail is not by receive connector.

In reciver connector you are able configure who can use it sou you can manage size from out by sending exchange user and anonymous user.

Yop you right

i read it too and microsft say that after using HUB TRANSPORT it is going by receive concetor.

But even you are able to specify in connector settings you cans specify MAX size of message that can go with connector and access gropus that can use it.

We have 2 connectors. One for local users and one for others.


But global settings are on top. Local settings in connectors are for autentified users and global for everyone.
