It means the message sent was bigger than the size the recipient's server will allow. Was there an attachment or anything on the message in question? Or does this happen all the time?

It is most likely something wrong with the recipient's server. Not much you can do.

As it has been stated already it is exactly what its say, Message Size to large. The Transport settings on the recipients mail server has a restriction on the size limit. Try compressing the attachment using WinZip or WinRaR. If that does not work see if they have an FTP site where you can upload the attachments to.

There is the setting for the individual's mailbox as well as the global setting.

I have also had problem with the antivirus putting on a size limit because it needed to unzip an attachment in order to scan it.

In the Exchange Management Console, open Organization Configuration and Hub Transport. Then go to the Global Settings tab and then double click on Transport Settings. You'll see the message size limits there.

In order to guarantee  that your 10MB file will be sent successfully I would recommend setting all of the scopes to the same 10MB limit. This way if your mail messages goes through a different receive/send connector or through a different transport server you will not be rejected if the limit is under the 10MB you are sending.

Reference the link i had provided initially to change all of the scope limits to 10MB.
