Then your end is probably fine. FWIW, default for Exchange 2003 send
limit size is 20mbytes.

1) Can you use blat.exe (http://www.blat.net) to send an equivalent
message to them from your desktop and your Exchange server
successfully? With a current version of that, you can crank up the
verbosity of the conversation logging, and see what's going on.

2) If 1) works, then I'd turn up the logging verbosity for Exchange,
and see what it thinks is going on.

3) If 1) doesn't work, then it's their turn, I think. What do the logs
on their end say, and what kind of system do they have?
