- GFI MailEssentials
- Microsoft Exchange server
Emails which are sent on Microsoft Exchange servers are formatted in TNEF. In order for GFI MailEssentials to process such messages, they need to be converted into the MIME email format first. The conversion requires the TNEF message size to be loaded into the memory. To protect the system from a memory overrun, the default maximum size of TNEF emails is set to 50 MB. If the email is larger, it will be stored into the EmailSecurity or the AntiSpam Failedmails folder. The registry key supports message sizes up to 200 MB.
