Is there any way we can limit the size of outgoing attachment to say a certain size?

if u r using R5, go to the configuration document, then go to Router/SMPT-Restrictions & Control-Restrictions, there is a field called "Maximum Message Size", there u can specify the limit of a message.  In R4 its under the SMTPMTA section of the NAB

There is a setting in the server document, in the SMTP section called:
"Maximum outbound msg size"

This will limit the TOTAL size of the mail message to whatever you set.  There is an INI parameter in 4.6.2 and above that lets you limit the Inbound attachments size and I *think* R5 has a settoing for outbound size but a far as I am away you can only limit the total message size...which is good enough in most cases.
