To solve your problem (avoiding downloading huge files), you have to
edit file "animailrc". Open /usr/share/doc/animail/docs.html with a
browser, click on the section "Animailrc configuration reference".
Here's the part that's relevant:

  1. MaxSize:
  Parameter: Numeric (in bytes)
  Default value: Unlimited
  This command specifies the maximum size of a message to be downloaded.
  Those messages that won't be downloaded will be deleted on the server.

No need for regular expressions, just specifiy a maximum size for
messages and that's it.
