You were on the right track...I am going to assume that
you are talking about the size of an attachment (say,
incoming and outgoing = 5MB ) vs. the size of a mailbox (
say 250MB for example )....
I would definitely do the following:
Open up ESM
Open up GLOBAL SETTINGS
Right Click Message Delivery and select PROPERTIES
On the defaults tab set SENDING MESSAGE SIZE to 5120kb
Do the same for RECEIVING MESSAGE SIZE
This is now the default limit, which applies to each and
every user in the environment. However, please note that
you can change this for particular users. In essence, the
individual wins over the group in this case...
Now, go to the user profile for each person you want to
have a different size. On the EXCHANGE GENERAL tab, click
on the Delivery Restrictions button. You can select the
radio button for SENDING MESSAGE SIZE and then enter a
value, such as 10240kb and do the same for RECEIVING
These users will now have a larger limit...
