why not setup a vsFTPd account for her to upload to? much easier to deal 
with and can be chroot'd, and used by others as well. files go directly 
to file system as opposed to having to be processed by MTA. When clients 
ask me this same kind of question I generally tell them there's a lot of 
good reasons why the internet standard for a 5MB attachment limit, and 
if folks need to send files larger than that, then FTP services are 
better suited for such things.
