internal mail with attachments bounces back with error.

We have a single new windows 2012 server running exchange 2010. We have 2 sites connected via in WAN, and all seems to be working OK, apart from this strange anomily. (The client is using Outlook 2010).

We have one user who wants to send an e-mail to another internal user from site 1 to site 2. simple e-mails work fine, but whenever he inserts attachments, the message does not reach its destination. The physical exchange server is at site 2.

Error :-

"Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups.

user.name
You cant send a message on behalf of this user unless you have permission to do so. Please make sure you're sending on behalf of the correct sender, or request the necessary permission. If the problem continues, please contact your helpdesk."

The strange thing is that he is not sending on behalf of anyone, he is sending from his own mail account to another internal user.

Can anyone help resolve this issue.

Many thanks.

Could you check on transport rules if exist any rule to block emails between certain users with attachments?

I have not set up any such rules.

I will take a look, but it's only when we send attachments we get a problem. Basic emails work fine.

Thanks

Other cause may be mailbox is near to be full and reject is configured. Text email still fit on mailbox but attachment exceed amount of free space and cause message is rejected.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I have checked the mailbox limits and there is plenty of romm available.

The other thing is that he can send attachments to everyone except this one particular user?? I have also checked his mailbox and there is plenty of room in that too. The recipient can also receive attachments from any other sender??

The diagnostic details are as follows :-

Diagnostic information for administrators:
 
Generating server:
 
/O=FSA/OU=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=john.smith
#MSEXCH:MSExchangeIS:/DC=local/DC=fst1:MS2[578:0x000004DC:0x0000001D] #EX#
 
Unfortunately, it does not mean a great deal to me.

Any ideas?

Strangely, this just resolved itself. Not sure what the problem was, but sending an email to the user with the problem, who then replied to it with attachments, was delivered OK.

After that, all worked as it should.

Many thanks to all who tried to help.

My own solution resolved the issue, although we are still not sure what went wrong.
