We have a person who is trying to send an e-mail to someone on our Exchange 2000 Server with an attachment that is approximately 7.8MB in size.

They get this message from our server:

Error transferring to (our exchange server URL); SMTP Protocol Returned a Permanent Error 552 Message size exceeds fixed maximum message size (TRANSFER FAILURE)

I have found some articles on Microsoft site that talks about adjusting sizes for SMTP and for the Exchange server but none of the suggestions work. I have gone into Active Directory and adjusted the size for the individual user who is the intended recipient with no luck.

Anyone have any ideas?

We are dealing with exactly the same problem -- some incoming messages are bounced back to external (to our firm) senders, even withOUT attachments. So messages size does not appear to relevant. What we suspect is a firewall-related problem -- we have a Watchguard Firebox X and think it is rejecting email on account of the length of header info for certain messages.
