Re: [PLUG] smtp maximum message size standards

In the message dated: Wed, 24 Aug 2011 16:52:56 EDT,
The pithy ruminations from Bill East on 
<Re: [PLUG] smtp maximum message size standards> were:
=> 10 MB at our organization  although there are stirrings now to increase it.
=> Since the ship is built for the passengers and not the other way around, it
=> has to follow organizational requirements.


It really doesn't matter what size is chosen. The maximum message
size will always be a few[1] bytes less than the really important[2]
attachment that the CEO (or president, or director, etc.) wants to send.


[1] For some value of "few" between 1 and 2x the current limit

[2] Powerpoint presentation to the board of directors explaining the change in
    projected quarterly profits in advance of the conference call with
    analysts. Or video of a cat playing the piano.
