Exchange 2007 server global message size limits in a mix Exchange 2003/2007 environment.

If you setup your first Exchange 2007 server        , global message size limits are configured as follows:


 


                                   Outgoing message size :                      10240 KB


                                   Incoming message size :                      10240 KB


                                   Maximum number of recipients :      5000



 



 


                        The settings can be configured with Exchange 2003 Exchange System Manager. However, it cannot be changed by Exchange 2007 Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell directly.


                        In order to change these without Exchange 2003 Management Tools, you can use ADSI Edit to change the following values.


 


delivContLength               Valid input for this parameter is 0 to 2097151 KB.


 


submissionContLength    Valid input for this parameter is 0 to 2097151 KB.


 


msExchRecipLimit          Valid input for this parameter is 0 to 2147483647 recipients.


 



 


                        Brief steps in modifying the global message size limits:


                        1.     In Windows 2003 server CD, under the folder “SUPPORT”, “TOOLS”, extract the files “adsiedit.msc” and “adsiedit.dll” from the file “SUPPORT.CAB”.


                        2.     Copy the above the two file to “C:\WINDOWS\System32”.


                        3.     Click “Start”, “Run” and enter “regsvr32 adsiedit.dll”.


                        4.     Double click on “adsiedit.msc”.


                        5.     Expand “CN=Configuration,DC=easypass.com,DC=com”, “CN=Services”, “CN=Microsoft Exchange”, “CN=EP”, “CN=Global Settings”.


                        6.     Right click “CN=Message Delivery” and select “Properties”.


                        7.     Select the desired entry and click “Edit” to change the value.


                       


        You may need to wait some time before the configured settings become effective.

Tip: Burn a Disc Image from an ISO or IMG file in Windows 7

Burning disc image feature is one of my long awaiting feature in Windows! Finally, it come true in Windows 7! [H]:

—-






Windows 7 beta 1 introduces a built-in ability to burn discs directly from ISO and IMG files (this used to require a third-party tool). To burn a disc using an ISO or IMG file, simply do the following:
  • Place a blank unformatted CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive.
  • Right click on the ISO or IMG file you want to use to burn a disc.
  • Click Burn disc image.
  • Next to Disc burner, click on the drop down arrow and select the CD/DVD drive with the blank disc you want to burn to.
  • Check the Verify disc after burning option if you want Windows to verify the disc image after burning the disc. Leave this option unchecked if you want to skip the verification. Note that you should skip verification if you are in a hurry, as this process requires additional time.
  • When it finishes burning the disc image to disc, click the Close button.

The DVD (or CD) is now ready to be used without your ever having to find, install, and use a third-party tool.
