I agreed that size does not matter. But I was mostly responding to
your statement "I have no limits on size for ClamAV scans," but there
are message size limits that can be set. So you do have limits.

Just get "Sanesecurity signatures" even though it has nothing to do with
the large file attachments directly? I actually looked into this
technology because of the thread, but it doesn't help in my case.
