I have an exchange server 5.5 running on an NT 4.0 platform. Someone was trying to send an attachment in of about 10mb in size but she received the following message

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Do you have anything that accepts your incoming SMTP traffic like an Antivirus Gateway?  You will want to check that to make sure nothing has been set there.

The recipient appears to have a limit on the message size that he can handle and rejected the message.  Its not on your end and there is nothing you can do about it other than to see if the recipient has a different e-mail address with no restrictions.

Check with the ISP and verify that they have no limits.

The sender has a limit.  Most companies have a 3-5mb limit on their servers.  If sending to Yahoo account I believe it is a 6mb limit, but sending to msn I think it is a 1mb limit.  Also, if there are mailbox restrictions set on users as well that would cause problems.  If a user you are sending to has a 10mb limit on their mailbox and they have 9mbs already, they would not be able to receive a 10mb email...only 1mb.  Good Luck
