  Found this snippet ....

This allows the maximum filesize allowed for attachments in the mail 
composer to be limited. To limit attachments to 20 MB in size, for 
example, add a line under [Composer] section of the Configuration File:


Alternatively, input the following into Konsole:

kwriteconfig --file /path/to/kmailrc --group Composer --key 
MaximumAttachmentSize 20


   Perhaps not actually in kmail config, but prolly in kwrite config, 
the default composer for kmail.
