Hi im getting an error on Outlook 2003 (Win XP SP2) that says

"attachment exceeds the allowable limit"

there are no restrictions on my email server that would prevent this, and i get the error when i try to add the attachment, so it wont even add to the email, let alone send. does anyone know the cause of this problem?

thanks!

I'm getting the same error. My Exchange 2003 limits are 25MB and I get the error in Outlook 2003 as soon as I try to attach a 10MB file, even before clicking on send. I have all the latest patches applied to both Outlook and Exchange. I saw in another forum where restarting the Exchange Server resolved the problem; I will try that tonight and update this forum if it worked.

RickKas, please start a new thread for your problem, even though it is similar to Hulud's (per GTG rules and regulations).

Hulud, is your email account POP3 being downloaded directly from the provider's server or is it running through Exchange inhouse? If Exchange, is it POP3 or SMTP?
