Do you need to change your sending and receiving limits in Exchange 2007 or 2010?

There are two steps to edit either (or both) of the receive or send connectors in Exchange 2010. Here’s a quick guide to both Powershell and Exchange Management Console.

 

POWERSHELL Change Steps:

Step 1: Change the Organizational Limits

♦ You can modify the organization message size limit with the following cmdlet from the Exchange Shell (For the example, we will set it to 45 MB):

→ Set-TransportConfig -MaxReceiveSize 45MB -MaxSendSize 45MB

Step 2: Change the Receive Connector Limit

♦ You can modify the receive connector limit with the following cmdlet from the Exchange Shell (For the example, we will set it to 45 MB, and the connector name is the name of the connector you are changing)

→ Set-ReceiveConnector “CONNECTOR NAME” -MaxMessageSize 45Mb

Step 3 (if you need it): Change the Send Connector Limit

 You can modify the send connector limit with the following cmdlet from the Exchange Shell (For the example, we will set it to 45 MB, and the connector name is the name of the connector you are changing)

→ Set-SendConnector “CONNECTOR NAME” -MaxMessageSize 45Mb
