Oh its quite likely our administrator made changes, even without realizing the harm caused. The other end is not getting the communications at all, instead I am told that my email cannot leave here, even if it could leave here previously. Its quite emotionally disconcerting for me, because at the moment almost all of my communications professionally and personally must be done via email.

Was that to the same destination system? Because each system has its own
different size limit, so a message which sends just fine to most people
may then fail to arrive to a new recipient because of the limits of their
own server.

It's also possible that some administrator has recently lowered the limit,
although this seems unlikely.

Another possibility is that the system at the other end does not accept the
same encoding as was used to send, and the re-encoding caused it to grow
in size, again this could happen if sending the exact same message to a new
recipient, or if they have made changes to their server recently.

When shellworld reports the error, does it say it is its own size limit,
or it says something like "while talking to (some other server)", which
would indicate at least who is rejecting the message because of its size.
