You have to remember that the message size will become much larger, once
the binary attachment has been encoded into text.


A message with a 7Mb attachment could easily grow to a 10Mb message for
transit over SMTP

Subject: [exchangelist] Delivery restrictions

I set 10240 KB in the sending and receiving message size under delivery
restrictions but when I tried to send a message with 7MB of attachment,
I got an error message telling me that the message is larger than the
current system limit.  It seems that it is still following the default
limit I set which is 5 MB.


What can I do to solve this problem?
