I'm looking for a way to increase the maximum attachment size for outgoing email in the default email app for Exchange / "corporate" email.

e.g. I'm on local Wifi and it won't let me send a 9MB video, which is just plain lame.

While I'm at it, I'd love to also increase the maximum size for App downloads when on 3G. I have a high-speed dataplan with a 6GB limit, and it's frustrating to have my phone tell me something is "too big" to download. My carrier isn't saving any bandwidth; it just forces me to use workarounds like tethering.

Open to rooting or any other hacks that will do the trick. I have control of the Exchange (2003) server if the setting must be tweaked there.

If there's no easy way to adjust, then whichever genius at Google dictated these arbitrary limits should be flogged. – rkagerer Nov 29 '12 at 3:34
