Limit to number of attachments on Exchange 2007 (sp1) ?

    Question

  • I have a steel company sending me 328 attachments.. All of which are 6k pdf files.  I have increased all the transport, send and receive connectors and check to make sure all those sizes were well above the limits set in place by sp1 of 10mb.

    However the error message they are receiving is...
    "#554 5.3.4 STOREDRV.Deliver; Content conversion limit(s) exceeded"

    Now i read on another thread.... this....

    This error code indicates a message size exceeds the size allowed
    for a Receive or Send connector, the Pickup directory or the Replay
    directory.

    - It can also occur during content conversion if XSO detects a value
    exceeds the  limit for the following instances:
    - XSO Max Mime Text Header Length of 2000
    - XSO Max Mime Subject Length of 255
    - XSO Max Size of Int32 Max Value
    - XSO Max Mime Recipients of 3*4096
    - XS0 Max Recipient Property Length of 1000
    - XSO Max Body Parts Total 250
    - XSO Max Embedded Message Depth on Inbound Conversion has reached
    (100)


    Since there are 300+ attachments, this appears to be above the Max body parts total of 250... Is there a way I can alter this... or if someone can push me in the right direction?

    I know that the conversion process takes an extra 30% above the email size to convert an "internet" mail message into an exch 5 message for clients running outlook.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    thanks

  • Hi,

     

    There is no such work around to work out this issue due to the XSO mechanism could not be bypassed.

  • Hi,

     

    Be design, the number of the attachments is 250 which is determined by the value of Max Body Parts Total and cannot be changed.

     

    Thus, I suggest we use winzip tool to compress the attachemnt in one file to resolve this issue.

     

    Thanks

  • I understand.  However....

    The steel mill has a new software solution in place that every piece of steel creates a pdf file that is then attached to an order email.  In one order there were 328 attachments and the email did not go through.  This is an automated system that I do not have control over and can't ask them to change.  Is there anyway to get around these limits?
