    It was quite some time since I was doing these things, so forgive me my bad memory.
    I think this is down to you are running a local smtp server on your machine (this in itself is not a problem of course) and that smtp is not configured properly.
    Second possibly the smtp you are talking to (can you send e-mail without attachments?) may not have enough free space to spool your message.
    Possibly a starting point.
    Also worth looking at is what port you are connecting to on the server.
