Hi,
On simple view, there's a mail rules issue, not network trouble...
Do you have some MIME-type filters on mail server or firewall?
Have limitations configured for download size on mail server?

Try with "controlled" test environment... your own gmail account and your corporate mail account, with well know attached files on a low traffic time. Perhaps on the night.

-hope helps-

I have mailscanner running with postfix.
There is a limitation for download fixed in 20MB, these test messages have less than 5MB.

I have this problem only with gmail and some others domains.
I've tested with a friend and his message with 8MB attachments was received too fast.

I'm troubleshooting network connection and I got some issues about routes.
I have two links and this relay is receiving from one link and going out through the other link...

Hi,

What means with route issues? do you already check routing table?
Also have IPtables/or similar on the mail server to route or just use the gateways to do the job?

Your server can successfully send mails with attached files at gmail accounts?
The others domains also have secure/custom ports on their mail servers as gmail?
Do you already validate that your domain can be resolved by DNS and is Not on a Blacklist?

It was a problem with route and nat.
The mail server was receiving from link1 and try to establish comunication with link2.

I'm studing a way to rebuild the routing table and all acls within my cisco router...

thanks it's working now!
