Well, how big is a "big" message?

We have a limit of 5 MegaBytes here, subject to reduction at any

Folks who want us to receive bigger files can put them on a web
server or ftp server.

Folks who want us to send them bigger files can make arrangements
to have them placed on our external webserver, possibly with
password protection.
