Package: fetchmail
Version: 6.3.7-1
Severity: wishlist

I was having problems retrieving messages with big attachments, so I went hunting for the
default maximum size for a message retrieved by fetchmail. I could not find any mentioning 
of that in the docs (maybe I'm blind?), and would appreciate if the value (4MB?) I got from
an old newsgroup post was reported somewhere on the man page - maybe in conjunction with the limit option.
