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.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

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

hehehe is this a mail scanner and may be as the size was higher then the org restrictions that were set the AV scanned and added a message. Just an assumption.
