All email service providers have a "cap" as to how much data you can email, before it deems it too big. iClouds file size restriction is 20 MB. See this article - http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2629 - look at the bottom, in the "important" section.

Thank you for your fast reply, however we are having a different problem here. The email system behaves complete at random in terms of message size. Out of 6 messages, differing only by attachment size and otherwise completely identical, it will recieve only Message 2, 3 and 5.
Message 1 - size 6 MB - rejected
Message 2 - size 400k
Message 3 - size 6 MB
Message 4 - size 16 MB - rejected
Message 5 - size 20 MB
Message 6 - size 7 MB - rejected

I should apologize for not making it clear enough, that it is the iCloud imap server, which has problems recieving messages for me. It rejects incoming emails at random, incorrectly reporting back "Message Size Violation" to the sender, regardless of actual message size. The operating system should not matter here, but i am on Mac OS X 10.8.2.

Can I add here that I too am experiencing exactly the same issues as Thomas and am getting on send as WELL as receive.
A resolution to this would be much appreciated as I am struggling to receive emails.
