You will have to adjust the settings on the exchange server properties, there is a size limit to messages sent which you can remove, on another note although you can have no maximum size limit your ISP typically does to and the standard is usually 10mb.

You can find some info here: http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6165487.html

I would check to see if this limit is set in your firewall or router.  I know WatchGuard firewalls in particular have SMTP fixup settings that can affect deliverability in this way.  I would also consider any Antivirus or Antispam service that is running on the server.  Based on what you have already tried, I don't think Exchange is the issue here.

erm I don't have any 3rd party antivirus or firewall on the server.

one thing I forgot to mention is this local server only forwards the messages onto a live web server we have running, I have tested sending large messages in and out of the live server with no problems. and the local server doesn't even open a connection to the live server when proccessing the emails

Ps the server was running for about 2 months from new sending messages of any size and it was only 2 weeks ago the problems started (I checked windows updates and there was no updates for at least 3 weeks before the problems started)
