[AusNOG] Straw poll: what is your email message size limit?

What is the point of raising it?

I've had a server with larger then 10mb size limit on it before, but it 
started generating support calls as the receiving end would be bouncing 
back (or worse yet, discarding the message). Are you taking these 
support calls on the chin as they occur? My thought on the process would 
be you'd need an 'internet wide' support and change-over at a single 
point in time to have it work perfectly.

I'm talking about remove delivery exclusively, obviously if they are 
sending between servers you own only, then it'd be much easier to manage.
