MailTips: Reply-All on BCC

Posted by Steven Kennedy on December 29, 2010


This MailTip is only supported in Microsoft Office Outlook Web App. It does not show up when using Outlook.

The Reply-All on Bcc MailTip is displayed if the sender receives a Bcc copy of a message and selects Reply to All.

When a user selects Reply to All to such a message, the fact that the user received a Bcc of that message is revealed to the rest of the audience to which the message was sent. In almost all cases, this is an undesirable situation, and this MailTip informs the user of this condition.

The screen shot below shows the wording you’ll see for this MailTip.

Reply All - Bcc - Redacted

MailTips: Oversize Message

Posted by Steven Kennedy on December 29, 2010


Scenario

The Oversize Message MailTip is displayed if the message the sender is composing is larger than configured message size limits in your organization.

The MailTip is displayed if the message size violates one of the following size restrictions:

  • Maximum send size setting on the sender’s mailbox
  • Maximum receive size setting on the recipient’s mailbox
  • Maximum message size restriction for the organization
  • Maximum Request Length setting (for Outlook Web App only)

Due to the complexity of the implementation, the message size limits on the connectors in your organization aren’t taken into account.

This MailTip isn’t displayed in Outlook Web App.

The screen shot below shows the wording for the MailTip when a users message size, for sending, is exceeded. For the purposes of this screen shot the limit has been set to 10KB.

Message Size Restriction - Sender

The same MailTip wording is used if the message size exceeds the limit set for the organization, as opposed to a specific user. This means you cannot tell from the MailTip alone whether the limit is being imposed at the organizational level, or on you as a specific user.

Message Size Restriction - Outbound Message Size

The last screen shot is the wording for the MailTip when the message size limitation is applied on the recipient. In this case as you can see from the MailTip it tells you which recipient will not receive the email, because the message is to large.

MailTips: Moderated Recipient

Posted by Steven Kennedy on December 29, 2010


Scenario

The Moderated Recipient MailTip is displayed if the sender adds a recipient that’s moderated.

The MailTip indicates which recipient is moderated and informs the sender that this may result in delay of the delivery.

If the sender is also the moderator, this MailTip isn’t displayed. It’s also not displayed if the sender has been explicitly allowed to send messages to the recipient (by adding the sender’s name to the Accept Messages Only From list for the recipient).

The screen shot below shows the wording that you’ll see for this MailTip

MailTips: Mailbox Full

Posted by Steven Kennedy on December 29, 2010


Scenario

The Mailbox Full MailTip is displayed if the sender adds a recipient whose mailbox is full and your organization has implemented a Prohibit Receive restriction for mailboxes over a specified size.

The MailTip indicates the recipient whose mailbox is full and gives the sender the option to remove the recipient from the message.

The MailTip is accurate at the time of display. If the message isn’t immediately sent, the MailTip is updated every two hours. This also applies to messages that were saved in the Drafts folder and reopened after two hours.

The screen shot below shows the wording for the Mailbox full MailTip

MailTips: Large Audience

Posted by Steven Kennedy on December 29, 2010


The Large Audience MailTip is displayed if the sender adds a distribution group that has more than the large audience size configured in your organization. By default, Exchange displays this MailTip for messages to distribution groups that have more than 25 members. For information about configuring the large audience size for your organization, see Configure Organizational Settings for MailTips.

The size of distribution groups isn’t calculated each time. Instead, the distribution group information is read from the group metrics data. For more information about group metrics, see Understanding Group Metrics.

The screen shot below shows the wording of the MailTip. In this case the ‘large audience’ has been set to 3 so that the ‘Large DL’ group triggers the MailTip.

Large Audience

If more than one group triggered the ‘Large Audience’ MailTip then each one would be listed, along with the number of recipients, as shown in the screen shot below. There would also be a total number of recipients displayed. In the example below 4 of the 5 groups exceed the ‘Large Audience’ trigger while the fifth doesn’t. The total number of recipients is the sum of all of the groups, not just the ones that trigger the ‘Large Audience’ MailTip.
