Indeed, of course I agree the avg. spam size is much much lower.

But a lot of the "manual" spam, typically originating in asia where people send out spam through Hotmail/gmail can be 1-3MB in size. Most of these are electronics or textile oriented "business" offers.

And my problem remains, our setup is based on MailScanner (a daemon like amavis-new) which doesn't use spamc/spamd so I'm unable to train my bayes on these 1MB+ size spams, which is a problem.

So can I conclude that there's no real solution to this besides code change?

Should I open a bug about it?
