When you attempt to configure the MS Mail Connector by specifying an Administrator mailbox on the Interchange tab, and you then specify a message size limit on the General tab, you will see the following error message when you click the Apply button:

You must specify at least one address space on the Address Space property page or at least one site on the Connected Sites property page before this connector can be created.

This message is incorrect because there is no Connected Sites property page for the MS Mail Connector.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Exchange Server versions 5.0 and 5.5. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


This is a standard error message that is displayed for gateway objects.
