I have sent large attachments(still under the max set for our server) to other external e-mail addresses with no problem.

The remote site is blocking the attachment for some reason. Their software is sophisticated enough to block it at the SMTP level forcing your server to generate the NDR.

That is exactly what I thought it was. I just wanted to hear it from some one else so that I could be confident that it wasn't something on my end when i explain it to my clients.

Thanks very much Simon
