Out of memory error

I am running imapsync and keep getting the error:

"Out of memory during "large" request for 67112960 bytes, total sbrk()
is 495640576 bytes at /usr/local/bin/imapsync line 1050."

When trying to copy a mailbox that has some large attachements.

I found on the internet that I needed to set kern.maxdsiz="1024M" in my 
/boot/loader.conf to fix this problem, but when I do that then my system 
hangs when trying to mount the drive.

Does anyone have any ideas of how to fix this memory problem?
