Hi Reinhold,

It's the default for Mailman, I think, and I would hardly call 40k low!

Why would you want to send an e-mail larger than that to the *list*?

Sure, there are plenty of reasons for wanting to send larger e-mails,
but they should not be indiscriminately posted to the Ubuntu list. If
you have something large that you want people on the list to be able to
access, just put it somewhere on teh intarwebs and provide a link to it.
