Sure, look for the following in the mimedefang-filter:

        if (-s "./INPUTMSG" < 100*1024) {
            # Only scan messages smaller than 100kB.  Larger messages
            # are extremely unlikely to be spam, and SpamAssassin is
            # dreadfully slow on very large messages.
 This is what controls how big of a file gets examined.  HTH.
