Someone has just posted a ca. 7MB mail to rtems-users. This is not acceptable to me.

IMO, a size limit of a few 100kB should suffice (AFAICT, most gnu.org lists use 100kB).

I for one, also would prefer to see all html postings to be rejected.

State-Changed-From-To: open->closed
State-Changed-Why: I found the way to limit post sizes and have set the limits

to 100K max and 32 bytes minimum. I tested the minimum size
and it worked.

I have added application/excel and text/html to the mimerejects.

Jeff you may want to make this part of our standard list setup.
