Outside Sender Not Receiving NDR notices - EXCHANGE 2003

I am testing what happens when an OUTSIDE USER sends an email that exceeds our email message size limit on our company's EXCHANGE 2003 server.

I just sent a 9mb email from my Yahoo.com account to my company email account. We have a 5mb email size limit. I have not received a rejection notice [NDR] on my yahoo.com account yet.

I have verified that in ESM that in GLOBAL SETTINGS/INTERNET MESSAGE FORMS/DEFAULT,
in the ADVANCED TAB that ALLOW NON-DELIVERY REPORTS is checked.

Is there a long delay before the outside sender receives the NDR or is there a setting on my Exchange Server that needs to be set?

thx

It will take as long as it takes for a 9mb email to be sent to your server, and then back again (as the original message is in the bounce).

Depending on your link, and the size limits to receive on yahoo, it would still take a while.

Will Yahoo allow you to send and receive 9MB in one e-mail? You may not be getting the NDR because yahoo refuses to accept it or your original message may not even reach your server.
