No NDR/warning for messages that exceed message size limit

No NDR/warning for messages that exceed message size limit

Post by TWFya » Thu, 13 Nov 2003 11:46:07


Has anyone seen the following problem:
config - Exchange 2000 SP3 on Windows 2000 SP3
When message size limits are set and a user tries to send a message that exceeds the limit, the message appears to be sent normally. In addition, there is no NDR returned and the message is never delivered to the recipient. It appears that Exchange accepts the over-size message, then drops it without letting anybody know that the message was too big.
Also, if an external message come in that causes the mailbox size limit to be exceeded, neither the sender nor recipient is informed and the message appears to be dropped.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.

1. Help - I'm not getting NDR when message limit is exceed

2. Message size exceeds fixed maximum message size

An AOL sender is getting the following error when trying to send to the SBS
2000 Server. It appears that there are no limits set on the SBS Server.
Any ideas of something I'm missing?
