How do I let an Exchange 2007 receipient know they had had an email rejected?

Is there a way to simply strip the attachment from an email that is too large and have the message still be received by the intended recipient with a notice of some kind that the attached email was too large?  I see how to set this up for attachments stripped by the spam server but not for those rejected by being too large.

Also is there a way for changes to the Hub transport rules to immediately take effect?  I have tried to remove the attachment size limit all together and restarted the transport service but I am still receiving rejecions for the attachments being too big.  

Thank you

I'm not sure if there is a way to strip the attachment, but still send the email, however if you open Exchange Management Console and expand "Organization Configuration" then select "Hub Transport" and click the "Transport Rules" tab you can create a transport rule that

"when the size of any attachment is greater than or equal to xxx KB" and then set an action to bounce the message and send the sender a notification, or whatever you choose to do.
