3.6 Controlling Maximum Attachment Size

Synchronizing large attachments to other applications and mobile devices can put a substantial load on the Mobility Connector. To decrease the amount of data that is synchronized to mobile devices, you can control the maximum size of attachments. By default, attachments larger than 500 KB are not synchronized to mobile devices.

When a user receives an item for which attachments have not been synchronized, the item includes a list of the attachments that are on the original item but not on the synchronized item.

  1. In Synchronizer Web Admin, click the Mobility Connector to display the Mobility Connector Configuration page.

  2. In the Maximum Attachment Size field, adjust the maximum attachment size as needed to meet the needs of your Synchronizer system.

  3. Click Save Custom Settings.

  4. Click Home on the menu bar to return to the main Synchronizer Web Admin page.

  5. In the Actions column for the Mobility Connector, click Stop icon (Stop) to stop the Mobility Connector, then click Start icon (Start) to start the Mobility Connector.

    The Mobility Connector now uses the adjusted size for restricting synchronization of attachments.

NOTE:The GroupWise Connector also has a setting to control maximum attachment size, as described in Controlling Maximum Attachment Size in GroupWise Connector Configuration in the GroupWise Connector Installation and Configuration Guide.
