Hi,

I would like to change the text that exchange 2007 sends when encountering an oversized email. Can anyone tell me if its possible to customize the message. When a user sends an oversized email they get the below. I presume this should be easy to change

The recipient's e-mail system is currently full or overloaded and can't accept any messages. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please try resending this message later, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

You can set the mailbox size by using Exchange management console.
Please have a look at this well documented article : http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2007/management-administration/exchange-2007-message-size-limits.html
Hope, this helps you.

Internal or external user?
External users is usually not possible to configure the NDR because it is done at the transport layer at the point of delivery. To customise it you would have to accept the email then NDR it.

Internally use a transport rule to enforce the limit.

It uses the command new-systemmessage :

and then a transport rule

(It says Exchange 2010, but I am almost 100% sure it works on 2007 as well).

According to Microsoft support this is possible. They will supply a fix however it will need to be re-applied after each service pack update.

Details of what needs to be changed

New-SystemMessage -DsnCode 4.3.1 -Internal:$True -Language en -Text "then type message you want"

then

Set-SystemMessage -Identity en\internal\4.3.1 -Text "same message again"

then you remove the custom dsn message
Remove-SystemMessage -Identity en\internal\4.3.1

and thats it. This needs to be re-applied after any service pack
