    Exchange email size limit

    I'm having problems sending emails larger than 2mb from my exchange 2003 server. The thing is there's no email size limit set anywhere I can see and county say their servers have no limit either. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Is it when adding attachements? Do you have a spam filter?

    Have you checked for limits on both the individual users and organization wide as you can set restrictions in both locations.

    Basically you add an attatchment fine, send the email and you get this back:


    This message is larger than the current system limit or the recipient's mailbox is full. Create a shorter message body or remove attachments and try sending it again.
    <"myserver" #5.2.3 smtp;450 5.2.3 Msg Size greater than allowed by Remote Host>

    Are you sure that the problem is not with the recipients email server as if it were an exchange limit outlook should inform you directly, the fact that SMTP is involved means that it was leaving the exchange server when the error occoured as it does not use smtp internally unless you are using Outlook Express or some other down level client for some reason or you have set your email up as pop3/imap + smtp instead of using an exchange connection.

    It does say the "remote host" so the setting probably isn't on your end. Can you send large emails between users hosted on the same server? Try one at 9MB and one at 11MB - I think the default for Exch2003 is 10MB.

    If you get the error with every external recipient I would guess that your LA is routing (or not) all your mail and they do in fact have a restriction in place.
