Hi, I'm trying to send a 10M file. I get these errors:
bash-2.05b$ mixminion send -t email@example.com -i /tmp/foo.tar.gz.asc -P '?,?,?,noisebox,?,?'b Mixminion version 0.0.6.2 This software is for testing purposes only. Anonymity is not guaranteed.

I can send smaller messages.

The exception implies that no exit server was found that supported delivering the kind of message you wanted. Once encoded, your 1MB file may be a little bigger than 1MB (we need at least one byte to tell the server you don't want to append any headers), and no server is currently willing to send files more than 1MB in size.
Nevertheless, the error is totally unhelpful. I've fixed the code to generate a slightly better error message.
