I have checked transport rules and global and user limits are set for a very large attachments.  Sending a 10MB pdf file yields the following:



This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you have sent could not be delivered to one or more
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address failed:

This looks like the receiving server is rejecting the message.

If you are running Exchange 2007 and you are getting the above error message from users outside your organization there is a very simple fix.

Set-ReceiveConnector -identity "Default [SERVERNAME]" -maxmessagesize 20MB

That will double your receive limit from the internet. Now if you want to go bigger you could do:
Set-ReceiveConnector -identity "Default [SERVERNAME]" -maxmessagesize 1GB
but that is not recommened at all.
The available options for the size are: B (bytes), KB (kilobytes), MB (megabytes), & GB (gigabytes). The maximum you can do is 2GB and any unqualified sizes are treated as bytes.
