Error message 552

I keep getting an error message when trying to send emails with attachments and I am not getting some emails as they keep bouncing back to the sender.  I have called Bigpond and they can't seem to find a problem.  The error message is below.


The message could not be sent because its size exceeded the server's limit. You can use the option, located in Tools | Accounts | Properties | Advanced, to break messages into smaller parts.

Subject 'Fw: Work permit and visa'
Server Error: 552
Server Response: 552 5.2.0 UNVm1p0122xjXec01NVnHi Suspected spam message rejected. OB702
Server: 'mail.bigpond.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC6D
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 465
Secure(SSL): Yes


Any ideas?

Re: Error message 552

The first line of the error message gives a hint of what you need to try.  It is saying that the system you are trying to send to will not allow such a big message through.


Try reducing the size of the attachments and send again.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
