You are syncing a 60MB mail, and I suspect Google doesn't like message
this large. I am not sure what error message Google returns and we
should find out, so we can return with a nicer error.

That reminds me of the Debian bug requesting that we don't output the
full message body in the debug output, which is most often not helppful
(perhaps output only the first 500 and last 500 bytes or so?)
