how is the mail coming in? if you have a spam gateway over there then you need to check the settings in it.
also try sending a test email to your account from your hotmail, yahoo or gmail account with an attachment of more than 5MB and then check from where the NDR is coming
also check whether you are able to send attachments of more than 5MB internally

I had InfoSec check the firewall, IPS and the spam filter and they are telling me that they do not have any size limitation on SMTP traffic.

if you send a message with an attachment of more than 5MB from an external account to your internal account what ndr do you get?
also check what server name is mentioned in that NDR
and check whether this is working fine internally or not

This problem resolved itself before I could do any further troubleshooting, how I have no idea. Maybe the Exchange fairy fixed it.
