And these evil emails are bigger than 80k?
bigger than 100k? 200k? What is their size?
Almost 3 years ago Shawn raised the 40k limit to 80k
limit to leave pass bigger patches. We can also very
well raise it again to, say, 120k. I don't think that
this will open the door to evil emails...

Nope. I didn't get anything at all. Radio silence.
P.S.: Leave pass evil emails is bad. Block legal
emails is much worse IMO.
