    Hello,
    When I try to send mails with large attachment to any of the accounts on the server, I get this error:
    552 message size exceeds fixed maximum size: 10485760

    1. I do not have a limit on the accounts I am sending the mail to

    2. I have added this to exim and restartd it but no difference:
    message_size_limit = 16384000

    return_size_limit = 65536


    Can someplease please tell me what I can do to fix this?

    Thanks so much

    Go on, have a guess
    Check in the exim_mainlog file for the actual error that is being generated.

    Then the message isn't coming from exim.

    Well, if there's no error or message in the exim mainlog when that delivery attempt is made, then the problem could be on the sending server/client, or whereever the sending server things it is sending to.

    Hi and thanks for your help.
    I am sending the messages through Microsoft outlook and my smtp server is also the mail server I am trying to send emails to.
