Also check the file type they are sending. Some systems block certain file extensions, or don'tcan't scan password-protected archives so they bounce the email.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

in that case the file extension would not matter as the size limit is more then the restricted by the org.
