The info he was trying to submit was 883 characters, including spaces
(counted in Word).  Many times, people have very detailed descriptions
they need to send in.  Can you think of a way to work around this
limitation?  Also, what happened when he tried to submit is he got an
email back with "Undefined variable" errors wherever the database was
supposed to send back info, and no record was created.

Unless you are using a text field (which holds 64K [mysql]) a normal
varchar maxs out at 255 characters
Post is limited by the php.ini file amounts (usually in the megabyte
what is the size of the post?
