I don't have Outlook in front of me now to verify the details, but I believe that you can set up rules to apply when sending as well as to received items, and email size should be an item you can check. So my answer would be, yes, you can set up a client-side rule to stop a user from sending an email with an attachment over a certain size.

Go to Organize / Rules and Alerts / Tab: E-mail Rules / Select 'New Rule'

Select 'Start from a Blank Rule'

Select 'Check messages after sending'

Select conditions 'which has an attachment' and 'with a size in a specific range'

In the lower half of that same window, the 'in a specific range' is underlined, click on that to specify the size in Kb

And select whatever other options are deemed fit for that type of e-mail.

Give your new rule a name, and make sure that the checkbox for 'Turn on this rule' is checked.

Recommend split between ET0000, AndreDekolta, and cogitate4u. (Woohoo - a 20 point question split 3 ways!!)

20 points cannot be splitted - that is why I wonder what to do :)

Although he was last, cogitate4u gave the most complete answer, so I'd give all 20 points there.
