Managing Recipient Settings


Topic Last Modified: 2005-04-22

Some recipient settings are configured in Exchange System Manager, so that they are applied to all recipients in an organization or to large groups of recipients. Examples include mailbox size (which can be set on a per-store basis), global send and receive limits, and limits on the maximum number of recipients to which users can send. You can configure exceptions to these settings for individual recipients in Active Directory Users and Computers. For example, you may have a user who needs a larger mailbox, or one who needs to be able to send large messages.

For information about using Exchange System Manager to set message settings for a whole organization, see "Managing an Exchange Server 2003 Organization." For information about setting mailbox size limits on mailbox stores, see "Managing Mailbox Stores and Public Folder Stores."

The following sections explain three of the four Exchange-specific tabs that you see in Active Directory Users and Computers, where Exchange system tools have been installed.
