  • Setting global maximum send size also affects receiving email?

    Weird one this.

    One of our customers configured a global send limit of 1024kb on their Exchange server on Monday. They called us today and reported that they were receiving some random NDRs from personal accounts and customers.

    Checked the event logs and found MSExchangeTransport Categorizor Errors 9012 reporting that the emails were too large to be delivered, even though there is no global maximum receive size configured.

    We tried this on our own Exchange server and got the same behaviour, has anybody else seen this before? We've advised the customer that size limits are best configured per user, and this is working as expected.

    Is this Exchange 2003? If so, then this is the correct behavior. Setting either the sending or receiving message size also sets the other to the same.

      Thanks. I suppose that does make sense in terms of why it doesn't work, but it is rather stupid. Not the first "feature" I've found in Exchange 2003 that makes no sense though.
