Hi

This is driving me crazy!

I am trying to get our sbs2011 server to accept larger e-mail attachments.

I have changed the global receive connecter maximum size settings to 45mb.

I have verified the changes by running :-

Get-TransportConfig | ft MaxSendSize, MaxReceiveSize

Which indicates that it is set to 45mb, as follows :-

VERBOSE: Connecting to SBS2011.domainname.local
VERBOSE: Connected to SBS2011.domainname.local.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-ReceiveConnector | ft name, MaxMessageSize

Name                                                        MaxMessageSize
----                                                        --------------
Default SBS2011                                             45 MB (47,185,920 bytes)
Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receive SBS2011                  10 MB (10,485,760 bytes)
Windows SBS Internet Receive SBS2011                        45 MB (47,185,920 bytes)


[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-SendConnector | ft name, MaxMessageSize

Name                                                        MaxMessageSize
----                                                        --------------
Windows SBS Internet Send SBS2011                           40 MB (41,943,040 bytes)


However when I send an e-mail with even a 15mb attachment, I get a NDR indicating :-

#550 5.2.3 RESOLVER.RST.SendSizeLimit.Org; message too large for this organization ##

I have tried restarting the transport service after changes, but nothing seems to help.

What do I need to do to get this server to what I ask of it?

Any help appreciated.

You have to also change the mailbox policy settings.

Full details on how to configure larger max receive size is here:

Just to clarify, I am trying to send a 15Mb attachment from my home to the SBS2011 server. The destination server is rejecting the attachment as being too large.

The server in question is ours, and I have full controll over the settings.

I just need it to receive larger attachments.

Many thanks.

I dont quite know what the problem was but it is now working?

It seemed to take some time for the changes to come into effect.

The document provided did help me verify the settings, so thanks for your assistance.
