Just dawned on me it did not solve the problem.
Because the mail server bounces the email before it gets to the users account, the filter does not kick in.
You would have to disable the quotes in the Server App and then use the mail filter.
Far from ideal.
Other suggestion most welcome.

Your mailserver should give an error code to the senders mailserver typically reporting an error 552 "Message size exceeds fixed limit" or something similar. This is then normally delivered to the sender inbox. However you can't customise this.
Some mailservers are better than others at doing this. Try sending yourself a too big message and see what you get.
For your benefit a list of typical error codes and descriptions for SMTP is available here http://www.hmailserver.com/documentation/latest/?page=reference_error_messages_s mtp

Already tried this and no response.
Originally highlighted when chasing customers who send large files to us and they never appeared, they also had no failure notice and thus my question.
