Hi Dan,
We have a 10MB limit on our Exchange server...across the board. Main
campus also has a limit on their mail system and I think it's the same.
Of course, there's the occasional faculty member who calls and wants to
send a 90MB PowerPoint presentation to their entire class and just can't
understand why using another method might be a better idea...

Hi everyone,

We are revisiting the issue of what an appropriate limit for an email
attachment would be for our faculty, staff, and students and are wanting
to know how other folks have addressed this.

If you currently impose per-message size limitations, what are they?  Do
you give different limits to different groups, or do you have the same
limit for your entire college?  We're needing to find a number that
balances the need for effective collaboration with the need for
responsible and stable use of service.  (an age old struggle)

Thank you for your insight!  I'd be happy to compile and share whatever
data is sent my way on this one!
