A bit more information required.

Are you using builtin fetchmail or a contrib as well?

I don't there is a size limit, but there may be a timeout.

What do your logs say?

Have you enabled debugging?

Have a read in the wiki.
1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions of software
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.

As each message is retrieved, fetchmail normally delivers it via SMTP to port 25 on the machine it is running on...

Take a look at the qmail and qpsmtpd size limits that can be set using the info from https://wiki.contribs.org/Email#Set_max_email_size
