Processing large email

One suggestion is to have sendmail cap attachment sizes at some arbitrary
number.  Unless of course you need files this large for whatever reason.

Subject: Processing large email

I've been using mailscanner with great success for a while, but every once
in a while, the mail queue seems to jam up. Investigation shows that it's
large emails, either attachments, or just text, but 100MB+. Is there any way
(running exim) to either push this off to another queue, or give the large
email a low priority, so it doesn't get scanned until there's nothing left
to do?
