I have a user that needed to send a 50 Mb PDF file. His send and receive file size limits were 10Mb. So I changed them to 60 Mb but Exchange would not retain the new changes. It allowed me to make the change but is not retaining the changed settings and the user could still not send the file. Can someone help with this? Thank you. Platform is Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2000

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Did you change this setting for all users or only one user?

    Hi You will need to change TWO settings. ONE is the max limit for the particular user or group of users. TWO is the connector limit, in case the mail is destined outside your system. BTW, just for your information, I have never, in my life, seen an SMTP system that will handle a 50+MB mail. You might be better off, using your company's FTP directory for this mail exchange.

    Hello, Try making your change in AD on the users properties (Exchange general tab => Delivery restrictions)instead of at the server level. The user setting will generally over-ride the server setting and allows you to control message size on a per user basis which is better for administration. If you make a change to a server setting and it doesn't want to take hold, try stopping and starting the appropriate smtp server through ESM after your change. Good luck!

    In response to petroleummna: Server limit always overrides personal limit.
