Managing Public Folders

Set Delivery Restrictions

To ensure that a folder is not overloaded with messages, you can set the maximum message size and specify the users whose mail will be accepted by this folder. These options are available only for mail-enabled folders.

To set delivery restrictions:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. If administrative groups are displayed, expand Administrative Groups, and then expand the group you want to work with.
  3. In the console tree, expand Folders, and then expand the folder tree containing the folder you want.
  4. Right-click a mail-enabled folder, and then click Properties.
  5. On the Exchange General tab, click Delivery Restrictions.
  6. In Outgoing Message Size, click Maximum KB, and then type a number from 1 to 2097151.
  7. In Incoming Message Size, click Maximum KB, and then type a number from 1 to 2097151.
  8. In Message restrictions, you can create a list of users from whom the folder will accept mail. Select Only from, and then click Add. Select a user name, and then click Add. Continue adding users until all users that you want to add are listed.
  9. In Message restrictions, you can create a list of users from whom the folder will not accept mail. Select From everyone except, and then click Add. Select a user name, and then click Add. Continue adding users until all users that you want to add are listed.
