Exchange 2013 Send/Receive limits

Hello - I am running Exchange 2013 and my global send size is set for 50 MB for send/receive. I have to managers that want to be able to send over that limit, however I do not want to change my global settings. Is there any other way to allow messages over 50 MB for these two users? I was thinking maybe if I create a new rule or some other way to allow just for these two users?

Thanks,

Are they wanting this for sending internal messages, if so there are better ways of sharing files, such as setting up shared folders on a server, dropbox, etc.

If they are wanting it for external messages, they should be advised that many ISP's and other services use set limits and they will NOT adjust the size. Gmail, for example. Email is not meant to be used this way for a variety of reasons.

well you can increase the limit at user level.

Refer below link to understand the limits at various level in Exchange:

The email size restriction for user mailbox will be applied in the following order

    Global Transport configuration settings
    Send connector size restriction
    Receive connector size restriction
    In the user mailbox properties of send and receive size limit

It’s also controlled in the configuration file of Exchange Server based upon the application

    Exchange Web Service (EWS)
    Outlook Web Access (OWA)
    ActiveSync

Thumb Rule: If the upper order is more restrictive, then this will override the below order. For example if the Global Transport setting send receive size is 10 MB and Send connector size is 100MB. The user will not able to send more email more than 10 MB size.
