Bug Description

When someone sends an oversize email they receive a response consisting of a OOPS number instead of an explanation of the problem. Instead I would expect a message simply stating the the message was too big and needs to be smaller than MAX_EMAIL_SIZE. I would also expect that no OOPS be recorded for this situation.

I'm trying to reproduce this or write a test for it, and I don't see an oops at the moment even when processing a very large mail... My attempted reproduction, by running process-one-mail, might not be realistic.
