Need Exchange limit help

I have a new SBS 2008 Server setup in a manufacturing environment.  Two 
users within the company send and receive large CAD files.  How do I allow 
this process?  Right now one user is try to send a 185MB file and it is 
saying "the message being sent exceeds the message size established for this 
user."  I have tried setting the limit in the console to 10GB and now I have 
unchecked the "enforce the mailbox quotas" box and he still can't send.  If 
I go into the Exchange Management Console I still don't see how I can make 
this work.  Is this something that has to be done using the powershell to 
change something else?

Do you have any idea how sending and receiving files that size might =
clog up your network?  Receiving won't be as bad as trying to send.

This article walks you through the process

Make sure that senders are compressing files with Winzip or whatever

If this is a frequent need for this type of thing..consider setting up =
an FTP server

Thanks!  I followed the steps in the article and globally changed their =
send/receive limits to 1 GB.  I know it is insane but that is what the =
company wants then that is what I will give them.  Since they are not =
under a managed service contract so I will just get paid more to fix it =
all later.

They are compressing files but the email going out today is 185MB =
compressed.

Couple of weeks ago Russ suggested that I turn their old server into an =
FTP server also.  I suggested it and they said they did not want to go =
that route because they have customers who use FTP servers and don't =
have good luck with them.  hmmm guess it is just a case where they are =
right and the world is all wrong.  :)

Thanks for your help!!

Well still no luck.  I have been at this for about 3 hours trying to figure 
out why we still can't send.

This "Get-TransportConfig | ft MaxSendSize, MaxReceiveSize"
Reports this;

MaxSendSize                             MaxReceiveSize
1000MB                                     1000MB

and we receive the same error when trying to send the 185MB message
! Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server - Sending' reported error (0x80040610) : 
'The
message being sent exceeds the message size established for this user.'

They are getting very impatient.  Any other thoughts?

Can you check that because the error sounds like you have a quota on the

That command shows "Unlimited" for all users both send and receive.

First, I have to say a 185 Mb attachment is rediculous. Ok, that's off =
my chest.

The problem I see with those types of files flowing through the system, =
will essentially vastly hurt and delay all other send/receive =
transactions. It will literally put the system to a standstill until =
it's done. I know it will multitask, but something like this will effect =
it.=20

At the one pharma I worked at with 5000 users, there were no limits. At =
one time, I kept getting a MOM alert on one of our internal Hubs. After =
digging up the email in tracking, I found it was a 1.5 GB file. It was =
failing because it was literally timing out. Exchange is not a good =
large file transfer application. It was never meant to be. I called the =
guy up, and he told me it was a DVD he was trying to send to another =
internal user. I told him we had to delete it, because it was generating =
too many alerts due to it's failure. I suggested burning a copy and =
using the internal snail mail system.

Anyway, when it comes to increasing size limits, there are basically 3 =
places that it needs to be done. Using an example 30 meg size limit, you =
would enter 30720.

1. Organization, Hub, Send Connectors Tab, "Maximum Message Size (KB)."=20
2. Organization, Hub, Global Tab, Transport Settings Property, "Maximum =
Receive Size (KB) and Maximum Send Size (KB)."=20
3. Server Configuration, Select Server Name at the top, Receive =
Connector tab below, In the Connector called "Default ServerName" =
Properties, Maximum Message Size (KB). If any clients are using POP3 or =
IMAP4, also change it in the "Client ServerName" Connector.

I would also be curious of the command output requested by Susan.

What? 1 GB? I think I created a monster! LOL!=20

You are welcome. Remember what I mentioned about a really large file =
hanging. A close to 1 GB file may not actually make it through.

setting a limit of 1GB is ridiculous. I expect _internal_ transactions to 
Exchange to timeout at well below this size.

Allow your users to get used to it and then whinge like a baitch when 
someone fans out a couple of hundred MB to 30 or 40  (or maybe hundreds) of 
recipients.

It is not only our responsibility, as consultants, to make things happen but 
to advise as to what SHOULD NOT HAPPEN.

What is interesting is two or more consultants have done Exchange or
email limits that no sane consultant would allow. I have a few Autocad
shops and they make use of FTP just fine.

multi10sMB file,  'yep, it's there, just 
http://www.company.com/files/clientname/yourfile.zip' ... 'got it? good, now

I think I had to show her twice, remind her a couple of times that the 
webserver also has its limitations.

Thanks SuperG and everyone who has helped!  As consultants you all know you 
can only offer suggestions so far.  I have pleaded with them and provided 
them with some of your feedback, they just don't care.  Nor did they care 
when I told them that they should consider either a new server or rebuilding 
the old one because their C: drive was going to fill up.  They didn't care 
for about 8 months until all of their mail came to a dead stop, their 
backups quit and they had to pay me and one of the MVP's hundreds to get it 
back temporarily until I was able to get this new one in place.  Now many 
thousands of dollars later, their back to "don't care" again because it is 
running now.

I do what I can but some I just can't reason with.

Autodiscover help
Does anyone know of a good whitepaper (or similar) that goes over how to setup and configure Autodiscover in Exchange 2007? Thanks. ...Or was that "auto-configuration"? I need help with the service that allows Outlook 2007 to be automatically configured when used with Exchange 2007. Sorry about the confusion..
