Hi,

This more than likely means they have a limit on their gateway, probably at 5MB. You need to send smaller sized emails.

It's the limit on your recipient side. Call them up and see whether they can increase the size if the attachment is of any importance. Or, try to split the attachments and send it one by one.

There is nothing else you can do from your end.

Let us know how you get on. This is quite a common error. Most businesses have strict maximum size limits.

The error is where the server that reported it is. If your server reported it, then your limits are the ones holding this thing back.

FTP?
