Exchange 2007 is unable to receive attachments over 7 mb RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I am using exchange 2007 with latest patches and updates. I cannot received attachements more than 7mb. I checked in receive connectors and it is set to 10mb. Checked Global Organizational Limit and it is set to 30mb. I am not sure where this is set.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You have to set at least 30-40 % roughly higher than 7MB. Say for example, try to set as 15MB and see the diference

  • Hi trueUser,

    This is by design.

    The MIME encoding increases the size of the attachment by about 33%.
