Well, it's 2meg :-)  The good thing though is that smail won't actually
receive that 2meg file before it bounces - this has been done at the start
of the connection before any data is really sent.  However, it does bounce
back the entire message to the sender (hehe!) which is a good lesson 'not to
do it again'  IMO :-)
