I am on v2.1.5.  Right now the attachments are moderated by size.  I have
it set to 2M.  Anything below goes through - anything above gets put in
the moderate queue.  That is what I don't want.   I'd much rather anything
below 2M go through, anything above 2M gets dropped outright.

Not exactly the solution I'm looking for.    A little more broad than

I guess what I'm really looking for is something similar to the
generic_nonmember_action tag which allows me to choose what happens when a
message breaks the rules.  In that case, I can tell it to reject the
message alltogether.     I guess a tag like message_toobig_action or
any_message_that_would_require_moderation_action - or similar
functionality.   Times like this knowing python might help I guess :)
