The aim of this patch is to entirely avoid rejecting during SMTP time, since
that confuses the MUA and causes retransmits.

Not helpful. The aim of this patch is to allow a SIZE limit to be advertised
(so that well-behaved clients will not transmit an oversized message) while
accepting those oversized messages at SMTP time (so that badly-behaved clients
will not continuously retransmit them).
