Thanks, this helped. I patched the plugin to extract images always and 
text never and got exactly what I wanted, great!

BTW maybe nobody ever had a 10Mb text, but if text/html attachment is 
extracted somehow, RT is unable to open it, error was: "unknown encoding 
external". If some implementation is missing, maybe you should not 
extract text?

A forced rerun only make sense if image size is configurable, otherwise 
the plugin always works correct with hardcoded settings.
