Sending informative mail if sender's mail exceeds MB size limit - can this be done?

Sending informative mail if sender's mail exceeds MB size limit - can this be done?

(OP)
(Elementary user)

I would like our incoming mail server to send an email to a sender, should their email exceed (in MB), the threshold governed by our mail server (Sendmail).

For example:
"Sorry your mail exceeds 6MB please visit our FTP site ..."

From experience, some senders (but not all) are informed by their mailservers.

Is my idea possible?

Many thanks

RE: Sending informative mail if sender's mail exceeds MB size limit - can this be done?

YOU can't, it is the senders mail server that delivers the NDR and the reason, Your server simply gives the remote MX a 550.2.1 response (Message too large).
