Hi, I'm trying to send a 10M file. I get these errors:

bash-2.05b$ mixminion send -t xxxxx@… -i /tmp/foo.tar.gz.asc -P
Mixminion version

I can send smaller messages.

The exception implies that no exit server was found that supported delivering
the kind of message you wanted. Once encoded, your 1MB file may be a little
bigger than 1MB (we need at least one byte to tell the server you don't want to
append any headers), and no server is currently willing to send files more than
1MB in size.

Nevertheless, the error is totally unhelpful. I've fixed the code to generate a
slightly better error message.
