I assume you applied the higher limits under Delivery Restrictions for the user.
Have you checked your SMTP VS properties to see if any limits are defined there?

Now, even if you get all these limits set, and the user sends the email out, Its very doubtful the receiving destination servers will accept a large message with close to 100MB attachment. It’s not at all a good practice to send such large attachments in email. The maximum, is 10 - 12MB to keep things under control. Why don’t you use some other means like an FTP server?

I have a user in my organization that needs to send a very large email but I can’t seem to get it to work.  System global setting is 10MB, and I bumped the User mailbox setting to 150MB.  The mail with attachments is 94MB.  SMTP Connector Message Size Limit under Routing Groups is not set, values are greyed.  SMTP Virtual server Setttings under Servers/Protocol/SMTP Virtual Server/Messages is also not set.  Yet whenever the message is sent we get - Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server - Sending' reported error (0x80040610) : 'The message being sent exceeds the message size established for this user.'

What am I missing, I thought the Limit set at the user level would override the System global settings, etc?
