IMHO, it makes sense when you know how it works, or when you develop the sentence, but 
the part "won't be archived immediately" is confusing. Sorry I am not native 
english and this could count, I got confused about the text that's because I had to look 
into code.

Mmm... I have used right now the (infamous) google translator to check if I am 
wrong, and translation to spanish (my native) is:
"El tamaño en kilobytes del mensaje más grande que no será archivada de 
Believe me... it is backwards :(

What about something like this instead?
The size, if greater or equal, in kilobytes of the message that will be 
archived immediately regardless of archive_days setting. Default is 1Mb

How is that backwards? (apart from the >= rather than > maybe)  If it's bigger 
than that, then return 1 (archive now), otherwise don't.

I was testing latest beta of 3.0 and see this new setting:

Looking into code this is backwards:

    /* always archive big messages */
    if (record->size >= maxsize)
        return 1;
