    Did you get the following smtp error message when sending an email?

    #5.3.4 SMTP 552 Message size exceeds maximum permitted

    In plain english it means that one of the mail servers that is either trying to relay or accept & deliver your email says that your email was too big.

    If you are sending a file or picture you can try to make the file smaller and then resend the email :


    Using FTP, IM, or a file sharing service such as YouSendIt could also be a reasonable alternative to sending a big email.
