GW Webaccess Attachment Size Limit

I thought I would share a quirk I learned this morning with Webaccess (18.2) behind an Nginx webproxy.  Webaccess users were seeing an effective attachment limit of 1M.  In my testing, when I would try to attach anything above 1M, nothing would appear in the mail; no error or message. 

Our Webaccess is proxied, and it has a default size limit of 1M.  To solve, I added the directive "client_max_body_size" with a value of "100M" to the appropriate server block and reloaded Nginx.  Then was able to upload and send attachments no problem.  IE...

server {


client_max_body_size 100M;


location / {
