You want to individually set or reset limits on some users
mailbox? You can use powershell or probably still use admodify.

My deepest apologies to the list but it was late and I guess
I should've double-checked before hitting send. What I'm confused on now is
that I made the 20480 change at Global Settings\Transport Settings and
thought this should've resolved it. I then checked my individual mailbox and
saw that it was set to 5MB. After changing this the message made it through. So
there really is no way to apply this globally for all users? Or am I missing

Errm, unless you've typo'd your message you appear to have
set the limits to 2Mb (2048Kb). 20Mb would 20480Kb.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Email and attachment size issues
I have a single Exchange 2007 server and I'm having trouble
figuring out why I'm unable to receive messages with attachments from the
Internet. I've increased the sizes at the following to 2048KB:
Global Settings\Transport Settings
Sender & Recipient Size Limits
ADSIEdit - Global Settings\Message Delivery
I've done all of this and I'm still unable to
receive email and attachments over 5MB. Here's a snippet of my NDR:
This message exceeds the maximum message size allowed.
Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please make
the message smaller -- by removing attachments, for example -- and try sending
it again, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.
The size of this particular message is 7MB and if I
download the message from gmail to my laptop I'm able
to forward it internally to my users. I've read up on content
conversion and therefore understand that this 7MB file could be increased by
33%. This is why I increased everything to 20MB. I've also been
advised that the limits have been raised at the spam filter to 20MB. I
don't believe this so I'm trying to make sure I've done everything I'm suppose
to on my end before I get into with anyone else.
Any responses appreciated.
