Under General Options, have you set:

         Send mail to poster when their posting is held for approval?

to "Yes"?

The list manager(s), if listed in the second field on that same page, are 
notified that (listname) post from (sender's address) requires approval, 
and are invited to visit the admin page, where they are notified of the 
reason the post is held -- i.e., the message is too big.  Happens fairly 
regularly on one of my lists.
