My patch would allow you to do this. It's this one:


(sf.net patch 1164457)

After applying that you should be able to just add:

SITE_HIDE_LIST_OPTIONS = ['max_message_size']

to mm_cfg.py, and it will remove the option from the admin

The patch is for 2.1.5; I haven't tested it against a newer
version yet, so hopefully it will apply OK.

Hope that helps,
