Configuring Message Routing

Specify Content Restrictions

You can use content restrictions to specify the priority and types of outgoing messages that can be delivered through a connector. You can also specify a maximum message size.

To specify content restrictions:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to Connectors.

    2. Administrative Group
    3. Routing Groups
    4. Routing Group
    5. Connectors
  3. Right-click a connector, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Content Restrictions tab.
  5. Under Allowed priorities, select or clear any combination of the High, Normal, or Low check boxes to specify priorities for outgoing messages that will be delivered through the connector. By default, all messages with any priority will be delivered. If you clear one of the check boxes, no messages with that priority will be delivered through the connector. For example, if you clear the Low check box, no messages with low priority will be delivered through the connector.
  6. Under Allowed types, select or clear any combination of the System messages or Non-system messages check boxes to specify types of messages that will be delivered through this connector. By default, all message types will be delivered. System messages are messages from the Exchange or Windows 2000 system, rather than messages from users. Examples of system messages are directory replication messages, public folder replication messages, Exchange Monitoring Tool messages, delivery reports, and non-delivery reports. Non-system messages are messages from users, groups, and contacts.
  7. Under Allowed sizes, you can set a maximum size for outgoing messages delivered through a connector. Select the Only messages less than (KB) check box, and then enter the maximum message size in kilobytes in the text box. By default, there is no limit on message size.
