Line length exceeded limit: Line too long

Hello friends,

I've had this error a couple times with my colleagues and I've seen some more people reporting this in the forum. I'll briefly give my tip on how I surpassed it.

What happened in my case is that we were importing emails via POP/IMAP from another email service and it worked for a long while until all of the sudden we some colleagues could not fetch email anymore and gmail just gave the error "line too long".

I'm our case the problem was caused by an email with an attachment of 30MB. What happens is gmail has a limit of 20MB for attachments, thus as long as the mail with exceeding size is in the original POP/IMAP account gmail won't fetch mails claiming that  "Line too long".

So, my solution was just finding the big mail and deleting it, in inbox and trash folders in the original POP/IMAP account.
