The email or file your trying to send is to big for the server limit, you would have to contact them or use something like sendit to send a link to the file for them to download.  They must have a low limit set on their server vs the normal 10mb

The exchange server blocked the email because there is a size limit on incoming emails.
The size limit is probably 5MB. The email with the attachment is probably just about the limit.
Unfortunately you will have to share the file another way.

I've been researching this a bit and theirs alot of write ups on this being a bug. The obvious would be that the message is telling the truth and the person we are sending to has a really low limit, I just can't see that as the problem.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Do small attachments go through though?  Try sending a small txt file and see what happens... I'm betting it will go through, keep in mind that even though the attachment says 5MB there will automatically be some added overhead to possibly bring you just above 5 MB

This is SMTP protocol Return codes, which tells you that Exchange server blocked the email because there is a size limit on outgoing emails.
You  need to reconfigure SIZE Limits.
•      The global setting
•      The Exchange SMTP connector
•      The SMTP virtual server.
•      The user mailbox setting
Your face this problem most probably because of SMTP Virtual server size limits. Please reconfigure it because All mail that passes through the SMTP Virtual Server (sending or receiving) ,if it is below 5 MB then your server not able to send and receive that kind of  attachments  or mails
