Try setting the limit to 2mb -1 byte = 2*1024*1024-1 = 2097151
Using a larger value than that will leave the limit to the default 16K.
As for the 400K image, it's the RLE compressed media of the member that is
being sent. Therefore, if it's a computer generated image that contains
large solid color areas, it could be compressed to 16K.
As for the compressedmedia property, this should be used for imported images
like gif and jpg (from what i can recall there was a problem with pngs) that
have not been modified.
What compressedmedia does is access and send the member's original
compressed data, long as they exist. If compressed data do not exist, the
member's .media is silently used.
