It's not a rejection -- as it says, the message is being held for
moderator review, because of its size.  A human needs to review it.

Nothing bad happened yet, so don't panic yet.  The point of holding
large messages for human review is to prevent viruses from getting
sent automatically to all list subscribers (most viruses are at least
40KB, but few legitimate messages are so large).
