The attachment is approximately 1 MB in size, so yes the full message  
size would be larger than 1 MB.  The destination organization says  
that they are not limiting message size, but the ehlo response is  
stating the contrary.  I sent an email to the postmaster so hopefully  
I'll get a better answer.

Thanks,
Eric
