It's in filter-end (or wherever you have MD calling SA).  The default 
mimedefang-filter has the following line:

	if (-s "./INPUTMSG" < 100*1024) {

Just change 100 to however many kilobytes you want.

If you're not using the default filter, you should be able to adapt that 
section of the example filter to fit your needs.

If you're scanning messages up to 256K, I'd guess you're either using a 
previously customized filter, or you're calling SA from something other than 
MD.  If that's the case, you'll have to look into SA's commandline options or 
the config for whatever else you have calling SA.
