If you know what the MIME type(s) or filename extension(s) of the
offending attachments are, you can have Mailman remove them in the
Content Filtering screen.

If you really want some but not all large messages to pass, I think
you should get a better moderator, the list owner if necessary.
Consider: the list owner is going to have to check regularly anyway.
Unless your list gets an awful lot of spam, checking once a day only
takes a few minutes, less than "dealing with those very large
messages" that the moderator should never have released.
