You may have to increase the message header size limit too. This was happening to a client of mine and this resolved their issue

Hi

Even after change the message header size form 64 to 200 KB same result.

The following message to <padas6@abc.com> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.0 - Unknown address error 552-'5.3.4 Message size exceeds fixed maximum message size'

I have restsrted the Services & tested two mails , one is through & another is blocked, may be through one is passing through the another server or not.

NDR message is shows the faulty Server only.
