X.3.4 Email Bounce Error [Message too big for system]

4.3.4 Email Bounce Error

Reason

Message Is Too Large: Delayed Message

The email message has not yet been delivered because the recipient’s email provider has a message size limit and the message is larger than what is allowed.

How to fix?

Check the body of the message for large amounts of text or for any large attachments. Try adjusting the text or reducing the size of attachments and resending. Otherwise, contact the sender’s email support team to see if they can help troubleshoot further.
