I assume you are referring to spamassassin checks. If so I have it currently set up at 750kb but we have plenty of recourses to spare, our servers have load of 0.35 on average. 


1.4mb that is extreme for spam message; the biggest one that scored below 10 in the past 60 days is 196kb. I guess someone has plenty of recourses and bandwidth to spare as well, haha

Subject: Max spam check size


Hey Guys


I just had to up our max spam size check from 1MB to 2,5MB because of some Asian spam's that was 1,4MB in size.


So I'm curious as to what size people use to exempt from spam scanning (if any)
