    "This message is larger than the current system limit or the recipient's mailbox is full. Create a shorter message body or remove attachments and try sending it again" is the NDR returned.

    Global settings, connector, SMTP and User mailbox settings all OK. Unable to send 10MB attachment.

    What am i missing?

    What are you trying to send a 10 meg attachment through? An ISP's mail server or one of your own. I know that 10 megs is the max limit for attachments for the wee mail server sitting on my desk.

    Boyce is there a size limit set for users email boxes? If there is and they are close to their limits it could be why it is not going though.

    bear in mind that if your mail limit is 10MB for sending, then you actually end up being able to send a bit under this (especially if its a zip file, since the server expands the zip file to scan it, taking it over the 10MB limit and rejecting it).

    But yes, it sounds like the mail sending limit on the account (or domain) is 10MB or less.

    And yes, as far as your mailbox limit is concerned, all items in the mailbox (calendar/contacts/emails/tasks/etc) contribute towards the mailbox limit.
