The default limit for messages in Microsofts online mailboxes is 35MB. You can change this limit from powershell commands.
If you don’t know how to get started with Powershell admin then look at my previous posting: Send As From a different email domain in Office 365 Exchange Online.
There are 2 limit parameters: MaxReceiveSize and MaxSendSize.
The command for changing the mailbox limit parameters is:
Set-Mailbox John.Doe -MaxReceiveSize 55MB -MaxSendSize 55MB
Substitute John.Doe for the mailbox you want to change.
To change all mailboxes use this:
Get-Mailbox -Resultsize Unlimited | Set-Mailbox -MaxReceiveSize 55MB -MaxSendSize 55MB
And to set the limits for all new mailboxes use this:
Firstly find out which mailbox plan is the default:
Get-MailboxPlan | fl name,maxsendsize,maxreceivesize,isdefault
You will see a list of mailbox plans (name followed by a GUID) only one of which is marked as the default and they will also show the current limits.
To change the default mailbox plan use this command:
Set-MailboxPlan <em>ExchangeMailboxPlan-GUID</em> -MaxSendSize 55MB -MaxReceiveSize 55MB
Replace ExchangeMailboxPlan-GUID with the default plan listed previously.
