If a user attempts to send a message to a Distribution List (DL), the originator of the message may receive the following non-delivery report (NDR):
The application log also shows an Event ID 290. There are no message size restrictions on the MTA or user mailbox.
This is caused by a message size limit placed on the DL. It is a common practice to put a message size limit on large DLs to prevent users from sending large attachments to many people, thus overburdening the network and delaying mail flow.
