shortcurcuit trustable senders with large amount of mail

i have seen in the past a lot of junk with some 5-10 MB crap attached,
completly unrelated images because spammers know that they can bypass
many spamfilters that way (in case of a large binary it's also no
problem for cpu ressources, only when they have a wrong text mimetype)
Another strategy sometimes is to truncate the message to that max size
before scanning, though making sure you get the most meaningful content
of a message without breaking the MIME format is in general not an easy

the answer to this from the SA developers was "don't care, should the glue do it"
