Remember to increase limit on Send Connector that sends mail to external world. Default limit is 10MB.

remember that a possible limit might be configured on the other end ( destination server).

i think put this setting to 10 mb and tell the user to split the file in to 10 MB files is better.

None of the above solutions is correct or complete

1. Increasing the limit for a single user is not correct since the hub-transport or organization limit will still be enforced
2. Changing the limit on all the send connectors will mean that all users will be able to send bigger emails
3. The person who said that the receiving organization might not accept big emails has a point, today it is kind of a convention that the limit size per email is 10megs. Of course each organization can pick up its own size limit but, nowadays, 10 megs looks pretty much standard. However this doesn't solve the OP problem

the only way to accomplish the required is to

1. raise the limit of all the organization, connectors and mail relay to the biggest size required (30 megs in this case)
2. create a distribution group, "allowed big attachment" for example, and put the people that need to send big emails in that group
3. create an SMTP transport rule that would reject all emails with size bigger than 10 megs with the exception of emails coming from users in this distribution group created above

" i think put this setting to 10 mb and tell the user to split the file in to 10 MB files is better."
split files into 10 MB or less will solve the problem too.
