    Go on, have a guess
    There's no such option in exim as determining the size of an attachment means converting back from BASE64 to the original file format. However, you can restrict the maximum size of a message using:

    message_size_limit = 5M

    That will put a 5MB message size limit on email if you put the line in the first textarea of the Advanced Mode editor in WHM > Exim Configuration Editor.

    Is this true? 50 MB? When you checked, where did you check? Trying to determine this myself.

    Here is another way to check the size limit:

    brunnhild# exim -bP | grep message_size_limit
    message_size_limit = 50M
