in bytes please, not mb or kb.
This is so I can create filters in gmail. Because some emails to text I get are too large to be receieved by @msg.telus.com as an sms, so I made I made a filter so that anything bigger than 34000 bytes gets sent to @msg.koodomobile.com which get receieved as an mms, but I've also created a filter so that anthing smaller than 34000 bytes gets receieved to @msg.telus.com as an sms. I'd like to know the exact limit before an email gets sent as an mms so I can get this right, if someone can find out for me please.

From what I can tell, the msg.telus.com address seems to break up long messages into a maximum of four threaded segments. That would make the maximum size in the range of 536 8-bit characters, or 536 bytes.
