We've been getting this problem intermittently on seemingly random emails with or without attachments to external sources.
The problem here is the error is pretty much a lie.
Size is not the problem, our limits and the limits of the companies we deal with are well above the size of the files attached.
Generally, the problem is "solved" by the user hitting send again.
Sometimes it takes multiple tries, but the offending mails always eventually go through.
It is near impossible to recreate this error on demand; so it is very hard for us to track down.

The lastest case had one of our users sending the same email internally and externally to the company that just acquired us (different email system at the moment).
The internal mail was routed normally, the external mail gets to "Started outbound transfer of message" before delivering and then returns an NDR (doesn't even get to our ISP/SMTP mailer)
My colleague thinks it might be due to something with the outbound queue.

Oh just to clarify, the full text of the message is:
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

     Persona A on 1/22/2008 11:25 AM
           There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.  Please contact your system administrator.
           <abc.ourexchangeserver.net #5.5.0 smtp;552 sorry, that message size exceeds my databytes limit (#5.3.4)>

If the message is exactly as you have written - including the poor spelling, then it isn't an Exchange message, it is being generated by the remote server. I don't want to be picky on the spelling, but that is very important as it can indicate where the problem is.

Do you send email email directly or via your ISP using a smart host?

Simon.

My apologies for the spelling.
Replace Person* A with the name of the person I am trying to reach.
Replace abc.ourexchangeserver.net with something akin to ex01.ourcompany.net
As in the server listed is our exchange server address.
This is why I am confused, as it says it is a problem with the recipient's email server, yet it lists our exchange server in the address.

We send our email via our ISP (broadview) using their SMTP mailer.

The bit I was concerned about was this: "that message size exceeds my databytes limit "

That is not an Exchange message.

However if you send all email via your ISP then your ISP is probably rejecting the message. The fact that your server is in the NDR is to be expected. The ISP is rejecting the message at the point of delivery, therefore forcing the sending server to generate the NDR. That is the best practise for NDRs as it takes the load of the receiving server.

If it is happening intermittently then the ISP probably has a mis-configured server. Most ISPs SMTP servers are not one machine, but a cluster. Therefore if one of the cluster is not configured correctly then it can cause an error. However try a few minutes later and hit another server in the cluster and the message goes through.

The problem of course is getting the ISP to understand that, when you consider that most ISPs default position is that their network is "perfect" and that any problems are caused by the customer's system - even when presented with evidence to the contrary.

Simon.

Thank you very much for clearing this up.
I guess it is time to shake down our ISP.

Wow you were correct, our ISP is being very very resistant to finding this problem.
For an entire week I would get to a new person, have to re-explain the problem, and be told that they couldn't fix it directly or they just flat out misunderstood.
One of the later techs even said that worldcom (those who run globaldns for our domain) was controlling our mail servers and we could "route it externally to worldcom's servers."

However, the last person I was able to reach threw a curveball said that the ISP doesn't allow smarthosting.
In your experience is it normal for an ISP to deny smarthosting for corporations?
I can see why from a policy standpoint, but from a technical standpoint I find it rather strange.
We've been using their smtp address since before I joined and now I am scrambling to find/read their TOS.
According to my senior they did shut down the link twice before for spam, but they re-enabled us later, so flat out prohibition seems rather odd now.

For a corporate account - very unusual.  For a home account - very common.
