Size limit for attachments?

There has been no published file size limit for attachments - yet it is likely Kale's systems may have an upper limit. We don't want to plan our system with a lower file size limit than what SIS will allow, for risk that we fail to handle an attachment sent to us. Will there be a specified limit or can Kale tell us theirs?

We're planning on an arbitrary number (not tied to Kale's ability, but something that the entire industry should be able to reasonably handle). However, it needs to go through the change control process, so ticket #129 has been opened. I'll update this discussion (and the ISPG) when a size has been decided upon.

The size for a single attachment will be limited to 25mb.

This is a very large limit - we can't think of any supporting document that would need such a size. The whole ISPG is only 5mb! Does it need to be?

We had to come up with an arbitrary amount that won't choke a system but is large enough. In some cases (Misc), there could be hundreds of pages. And, unlike the ISPG, these won't be data with formatting but instead scans, essentially a bunch of images strung together.
Also, keep in mind that you will be billed per kb uploaded. At approx $1 per mb, there's very real incentive for the OA not to send unnecessarily huge attachments, which I imagine is your concern.
