Using this command provides several benefits. It helps in managing the Exchange Server’s resources effectively by preventing large emails from consuming excessive storage space and network bandwidth while also ensuring that the mailbox remains within acceptable size limits, preventing potential performance issues. Furthermore, controlling the maximum receive size can be useful for enforcing email policy compliance and maintaining efficient email traffic.

Administrators can tailor these size limits to align with their organization’s needs, optimizing the balance between efficient resource usage and user communication requirements.
