man spamc

 -s max_size, --max-size=max_size
           Set the maximum message size which will be sent to spamd --
any bigger than this threshold and the message will be returned
unprocessed (default: 500 KB). If spamc gets handed a message bigger
           than this, it won't be passed to spamd. The maximum message
size is 256 MB.
