Is there a way to notify a recipient that an incoming email was rejected due to size limits?

I occasionally get users that receive large blueprint files, and I see this as becoming more coming in the future as more and more of our customers send us digital prints rather than paper.

Currently, if an attachment comes in that is over the preset limit, it gets rejected and the sender gets a Delivery Failure Notice, which due to spam filters, AOL controls, etc, sometimes don't make it back to the originator.

Can I set something so the intended recipient of the email can receive a notice that someone tried to send them an email that contained an oversized attachment? Maybe even send the email, with a note added that the attachment was removed due to size?

Thank you in advance.

Nope - because the message is rejected at the point of delivery. Exchange hasn't got hold of it and rejects it.

To be able to do an NDR you would have to accept the message then bounce it, but that would default the point of a limit.
