E-mail message with attachment2Mb (message size) AND more than 49 recipients

A message that is 2Mb or greater and sent to more than 49 recipients will be held until 5pm. At that time, it will be delivered. When this condition is met, the sender will have received the following message:

MailMarshal (an automated content monitoring gateway used at NWOCA.ORG) has identified the following message as too large:

    Message: {MessageName}
    From: {Sender}
    To: {Recipient}
    Subject: {Subject}

The above message is too large to be sent via Email during normal working hours.  Delivery of messages of this size will occur only after 6:00pm or before 5:50am Monday thru Friday.  Messages identified as being too large for normal delivery will be -AUTOMATICALLY- deferred (delayed) as necessary to be delivered during non-prime hours.

Email is not an effective mechanism for sending large files. Sending large attachments causes problems for both mail servers and recipients of your message.  For example, a large message may cause the receiver's mail box to run out of space (quota).

The best method to send large files is to use the NWOCA File Transfer service available at https://filetransfer.nwoca.org.  For instructions on this service please visit https://wiki.nwoca.org/x/ZANw.

If you are sending a file you downloaded from the Internet, consider sending just the original URL.

If sending some other type of attachment, consider using a more efficient format.  For example, scanned documents sent as graphics do not compress well. Or use a graphics package to reduce the resolution of the graphic image.

A message that is 10Mb or greater and sent to 5 9 to 49 recipients will be held until 5pm. At that time, it will be delivered. When this condition is met, the sender will have received the following message:
