That's fine if you have a nice little linux box, with a static IP. The
99.5% of the planet that doesn't is screwed. If you don't want large
attachments, then set sendmail (or whatever else you're using) to
reject it. You shouldn't hope that others "follow the rules", protect
your system and don't care what "they're" doing.
