  • "EWSMaxReqLength - The /EWS virtual directories maxRequestLength doesn't match the get-transportconfig MaxSendSize" breaks OWA.  Users cannot delete emails.  It also breaks email flow on Blackberries on SBS2011 servers with Blackberry Enterprise Server Express installed.  Apparently there are other settings needing to be changed as well that BPA does not indicate.  Restoring EWSMaxReqLength back to original setting allows everything to work again.

  • Hi,

    This known issue has been documented in a recent blog post.

    blogs.technet.com/.../known-issue-in-windows-server-solutions-bpa-update-rollup-3.aspx

    Thanks.

  • pperry803,  what SBS bloogers essentially means is , always first publish wrong rules , wrong information , this allows end users to break endless machines and then SBS Bloggers will work on writing next blog article ( to get some extra work ) .

  • discovered this painful BPA introduced issue as well when users reported broken OOF messaging which is also under EWS
