What is the Maximum Size of a Message I Can Send or Receive?
Students, faculty, and staff are permitted to receive and send a message
up to 20MB in size. Message headers count towards the message size. Additionally,
binary attachments have to be MIME encoded, so there can be a significant
increase in the attachment size due to the encoding. Before sending large
attachments, ensure that the person you are sending the attachment to is able
and willing to receive a large attachment. Many mail servers reject messages
that are 20MB in size. Additionally, if the person you are sending the message
to is running low on mail server space, they may not be able to receive the
message or receive additional messages after receiving the large attachment
from you. Another factor to consider is that large attachments may take a
considerable amount of time to send or receive for users who access the Internet
with a dial-up connection.
If you access your e-mail through OWA (SacLink Web-based e-mail), with a
direct connection to the Exchange server, or are using the MAPI protocol,
you should delete messages with attachments from your sent items folder to
free up your allotted mail server space. Additionally, check your In Box for
large messages that were returned in case the recipient(s) mail server would
not accept large messages. Delete these messages from your In Box and empty
your Deleted Items bin.
