It looks like in this case ... yes, I believe the limit is on your end.

I am a little unclear on your email setup; I know the MX handler for
dad.org is ns2.adzone.com.  It looks like then it might hand it off to
a mail server in dad.org (nad.dad.org?).  So you'd need to talk to the
guy who administrates nad.dad.org.

If that is YOU ... well, in fairness I will point out that this isn't
a nmh problem :-)  But I guess I'd do the following steps:

- Telnet to nad.dad.org 25, and give the command "EHLO foo".  You'll get
  list of supported SMTP extensions.  One of them might be SIZE, and a large
  number.  That would be the advertized size limit (not all mail servers
  will report a size).

- If you are running Postfix (a guess based on a Googling of that error
  message), that's an easy parameter to change.  Check out:


  You probably want "message_size_limit" and/or "mailbox_size_limit".
