We got the following error message sending an email from our Exchange server but on every setting I can find for the sending limit we don't have a limit but we still got the error message. Was this message because GMAIL's limit was reached or on our server?

This message wasn't delivered to anyone because it's too large. The limit is 34 MB. This message is 44 MB.

As stated in the first paragraph of the error message this error was generated from the Gmail server. Which is why it failed. This is not a restriction on your Exchange Server.
