It appears that Exchange 2007 will not accept messages that have large attachmants. I am not really sure the size at which it stops but it appears to be aroung 10meg. I have checked and it appears to me that there are no limitations on message size, but then I cant be 100% sure since my knowledge on this system is limited.

trath,

Both Exchange 2003 and 2007 have a default setting of 10MB max for attachments.  

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124345.aspx to learn how to adjust it in Exchange 2007

I had seen that article before, and it was not much help becasue it didnt tell you how to fix the problem only that it existed. The real answer was found on a different article.. and is this

To use the Exchange Management Shell to set a 50 MB limit on message size on an existing Receive connector named "Connection from Contoso.com"

Run the following command:
