 I am well aware that you can set the following via Notes.ini / router configuration. It will affect that server and those who use that server as their mail server.
1. Maximum message size (for both incoming & outgoing)
2. Maximum number of recipient
3. Message size x number of recipient must not exceed n MB
However there are circumstances that I wish this setting could be applied on per user basis / per group basis. I wish that this could be set in policy (mail policy maybe ?) so it can be applied to individual users / group.
I have just been asked about this by 2 different company that do not want to create another domino server just to temporarily hold 15 - 30 users that need to send / recieve emails with bigger size.
On that note, I also wish that router have a separate message size restriction for local address and internet address. I understand that you could put a relay host and put a global size restriction there but currently there are no solution if I wanted each user to have a different limit.
Does anyone know any workaround on how to apply the above limitations on a per user basis ?

A different limit per recipient address would be useful for mailin dbs that receive NSDs from client or server crashes or other big files.

Tinus, the performance hit on such a setting would be dramatic, IMHO. The router would still need to enforce the setting on the inbound mail, introducing a pause as it looks-up the restriction level for each address. Add tens of thousands of users and mail will slow down markedly.

Instead, why not give them iNotes access and set the restriction for them that way? Group policy for these web users might be a better way to go.

@Bill, can you tell me how to setup this size restriction for iNotes ? I don't really mind implementing mail policy on several groups if I can have a more "flexible" mail size limitation.
