The problem isn't trust, its uneducated or new users who don't know the 
netiquette.  That's why I'd state a limit of 10k and protect against 100k or 
bigger in case someone doesn't know or accidentally attaches the wrong file 
etc.  You're not limiting that way but you are protecting against tme 2Mb 
file that gets emailed :)
