Well, personally I don't see a need for it. If you're sending message
size in APPEND as a normal literal, the server can reject it
immediately. So it would be useful for literalplus only.
Yes, but shouldn't the client know that the server will reject such
And is it really the message size limit that's a problem?
In the case I'm trying to address, it is. If the server (as opposed to
file format) is incapable of handling an incoming literal of more than
100MB, then it is pointless for it to try to accept a 2GB literal.
You all are also overlooking the question of *administrative* limits.
SMTP's SIZE verb is an *administrative* limit, not a technical limit. I
think that that we need something similar for IMAP.
