Got one solution but not the ideal one yet:

In the listname.config file for the majordomo list there is a parameter "maxlength" which limits the size of the messages in the list.

        # maxlength [integer] (40000) <resend,digest>
        # The maximum size of an unapproved message in characters. When
        # used with digest, a new digest will be automatically generated if
        # the size of the digest exceeds this number of characters.
maxlength = 400000

O I suggest taking the relevant entries out of /etc/aliases and putting them
