Managing Recipient Settings

Select Maximum Size of Outgoing Messages

For mailbox-enabled users, you can set the maximum size limit for an outgoing message by using default limits or by selecting the maximum size of the outgoing message in kilobytes (KB). Since maximum message size limits are set on the mailbox-enabled user's Properties dialog box, you can set different maximum size limits for different users.

Note   The default maximum size limit of outgoing messages is defined in the Global Settings node in Exchange System Manager.

To select the maximum size limit of outgoing messages:

  1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. In the console tree, expand the Windows 2000 domain. Double-click Users, or double-click the node that contains the recipient information you want to modify.
  3. In the details pane, double-click the mailbox-enabled user you are modifying.
  4. On the Exchange General tab, click Delivery Restrictions.
  5. In the Delivery Restrictions dialog box, under Sending message size, select Maximum KB, and then type the maximum outgoing message size limit, in kilobytes (KB).
