The only way I could think of for doing this would be to create a second set of mailer definitions with the 'M=' (Maximum message size) setting altered appropriately, and custom parsing rules to force the messages sent from a particular address to be delivered via those mailers. Needless to say, that's going to be a pig of a job to set up and configure correctly. You would be better off setting up some sort of Milter or indeed forcing all of the messages to be processed through procmail(8). See http://www.benzedrine.cx/milter-regex.html or http://www.snert.com/Software/milter-sender/ for somethings that might do the job -- except that apparently neither of those can filter by message size. Both are available in ports -- if the term 'Milter' means anything to you, and you're fluent at C programming then adding a check on message size might be possible.
