Email Attachment Email Alert

Hi All

Im wondering if anyone has had the same scenario and whether they have a workable solution.  

If someone sends an inbound email to my company with an attachment that is too large for my receive connectors we wont know that its been rejected.  What we would ideally like is for either the recipient or the external sender to be sent an alert to tell them that their message has been rejected, and the reason being is that their attachment is over our accepted limit.

Thanks

Your server should automatically be seining NDRs, with an error message that indicates just that.  Unfortunately end users typically get confused by all the jargon and need someone on the IT team to deciper it

Is there a way I can check whether my server is sending those NDR's, apart from just sending a test email with a large attachment to it.
