In outlook it says "undeliverable" when sent to multiple address's, but sent one at a time users are telling me it works.  I believe 4-10 meg

All NDR say Undeliverable.

In the actual rejection email it will tell you the reason... for example the one below is rejected due to too many recipients:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:      Some Email
      Sent:      5/10/2011 7:05 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      someone@somewhere.com on 5/10/2011 7:05 AM
            The e-mail system limits the number of recipients that can
be addressed in a single message.  Send the message multiple times to
fewer recipients.
