Matt, you are right that in NTMail 3.03 the mail limits apply to the whole domain so, without creating a specific domain for them, you have to make this a global setting.

In version 4 (due for release in May), it will be possible to do this on a user basis.

Have you got them to check that their client timeout is set to a large enough value? Also I seem to remember that Microsoft had a knowledge base article about increasing the TCP/IP MTU, especially for Win 95 clients. Getting the latest DUN can help also.
