Pinging this thread to see if there's been any progress or decision on this
bug.

I too am starting to see quite a bit of spam that's *just* over the 500k
threshold due to ~4K-sized image attached to the spam. It almost makes me
wonder if they are doing this just to get it over the standard SpamAssassin
threshold.

It seems like the size limit should be applied to the searchable parts of
the email, not any attached images.
