Hi Andy,

   If you're using a UNIX system, this wouldn't be too difficult to 
   implement in procmail.  You could have a recipe that determines the
   message size, adds it to a running total that's stored in a file,
   then does something if the running total is too high.

   The only problem that I can see is that the disk space utilized 
   wouldn't be exact; it would be based on the size of the original 
   message, not the size of the message once attachments have been
   converted, the message has been HTML-ized, etc.  But it would be a
   decent approximation.

   Let me know if you want more details and I'll post them to the list.
