postfix has a 10MB default and I think it's a good default. I usually have 
to up it on machines where publishers or advertising agencies have 
accounts on as they frequently mail printing stuff that is larger. But I 
never put it higher than 30 MB. Everything above that has to be carried 
out via FTP.
