We are running Exchange 2000 Enterprise and wish to stop most people in the
organisation from sending or receiving email larger than 2MB both internally
and externally. A few people need to have a larger restriction.
I have left the 'Default SMTP Virtual Server' -> 'Limit message size to
I have applied the 'Global Settings' -> 'Message Delivery' ->properties ->
'Defaults' -> 'Sending message size' -> 'Maximum (KB)' and 'Receiving
message size' -> 'Maximum (KB)' to 2048KB.
I then went to 'Active Directory Users and Computers' and went into each
user that needed the larger message size restriction. I visited the
'Exchange General' tab and the 'Delivery Restrictions' button and changed
the radio button from 'Use default limit' to 'Maximum (KB)' and specified a
larger size eg 5120KB.
The problem now appears.... ALL users (doesn't matter if the user object
has it's own delivery restrictions set) have a 2MB send/receive limit... I
would assume that this should not be the case. What is happening??
Thanks in advance..
