As it turned out, most, if not all of you that responded were correct.
First, thanks for the responces.

It turned out that one of the guys I work with found a doc on sun's
support page that instructed him how to do it: "Turn to page 12345 of
O'Reilly's Sendmail book...". Thought that was kinda funny.

Anyway, we figured out that you had to apply the M= option to each of the
M-lines of the file. In other words, it was necessary to make
changes on the lines:


 From the default, to read something like:

Mlocal ... M=<message size>

So, for those of you that said to make it say "MaxMessageSize", I couldn't
get that to work.. Any ideas on that? Otherwise, its work ok.

Thanks again,
Dave Wreski
