Hmm, no, we're not talking about the size of a POST request to a
website here, we're talking about the size of an e-mail to a SMTP
server. There is no php.ini involved -- there actually is no PHP
involved at all, unless the SMTP server you're talking to is in PHP,
but then, as a mail user, you won't be able to change its .ini file.
