The size limitation in Apache may be your issue. If not there I found my PHP config limited the size of the files that could be uploaded onto my Linux box.

The client does not determine the limit on attachment size.

OK
What email server is running?
Once you have that post the config file here. Maybe we can see where the changes need to be done to enable larger files to be attached.
