I don't know about 20k, but I definitely don't see the need to allow
large attachments on a large mailing list like this...

64K should be more than enough for basic traffic - anything bigger, as
Felix said, should be uploaded somewhere with a URL link to it, so only
the ones who need it will download it.

Please don't change this limit...

What I would love to find is an easy to install/configure/use mail
server add-on that would strip off all attachments over a configured
size (in our business we deal with a lot of large attachments - I have
to allow a max of 50MB), and drop them on a filesystem, and add a link
to the email then pass the email on to its destination.
