AS max size scan

Unanswered Question
Nov 29th, 2007

Is everyone comfortable with the default value for maximum message size to scan for IPAS (131,072 bytes)? I remember previous releases of AsyncOS had a value of 260,000 bytes and even in the support portal's KB theres a post that doesn't recommends downloading these number below 260K.

What's your experience in these regard?

I have this problem too.

Most spam is smaller then 130k. In the last year there was only 1 spam wave with bigger attachments and that was the introduction of PDF spam.

The value reasonable.
