We have our email limit set at 10mb. Occasionally someone needs to send an email larger than this.
The only way around it that we currently have is to use a webmail account.

Is there anyway that I can manually authorize these emails to be let through exchange depsite them being over the size limit?

No - if a limit is set, it is set.  The only way is to increase the limit and let it through, allowing other emails up to and including the size you just set.

you didn't tell us what exchange server you have ?

if you are using exchange 2010 you can

1. set the email limit to something big
2. use transport rules to send all emails with attachment size bigger than 10 megs to a moderation mailbox
3. accept only the ones you want
