Is there a maximum to sending emails with attachments in PEGA 7.1.8?

Hi all,

We are experiencing errors in our logging frequently, see below.


2016-09-24 20:42:27,704 [PegaWorkManager : 10] [  STANDARD] [                    ] [    TopasFW:07.02.03] (pega_integrationengine_default) ERROR   -

Unexpected exception caught while trying to send an email message.

com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPSendFailedException: 552 Message size exceeds fixed maximum message size set by administrator

at com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPTransport.issueSendCommand(


These occur when emails with attachments are being sent and those emails are apparently larger than the fixed maximum size set by the administrator.

But, whe don't know where that setting is set and where the message is raised. Is that within PEGA of somewhere else?

We are using PEGA 7.1.8. om Websphere 8.5 on a AIX environment.


Does anybode have any idea??
