Maximum Message size and Attachmnet size no working for me

I am running MailScanner version 4.42.9, Postfix 2.1.5 and Spamassassin

I have set:

Maximum Message Size = 10000000

Maximum Attachment Size = 10000000


I tested this by sending out a 20MB message to see if it will get blocked
but the message got past MailScanner.


I am wondering if some other setting in MailScanner can be overriding
this. All I can think of is that I have everything From: everyone on my
internal LAN is whitelisted in spamassassin whitelist (I am grasping at
straws here), also I have set in postfix message_size_limit = 35000000,
can any of these configurations be overriding these settings.


Please Help
