[Snort-sigs] Looking for HTTP POST's over 1mb in size

So I wrote a signature to detect HTTP POST's over 1mb in size, but I think 
that my pcre logic is flawed.  Can someone take a look and let me know if 
this is OK?  (It does work, but will trigger on file sizes < 1mb based on 
the Content-Length: header)
(We have some stuff in there to ignore posts to certain sites due to too 
many false positives)
The rule is:
alert tcp any !20 -> $EXTERNAL_NET !25 (flow:established,to_server; 
priority:1; content:"POST"; nocase; http_method; content:!"Shockwave"; 
nocase; http_header; content:!"x-flash-version"; nocase; content:!"Host\: 
live.com"; nocase; http_header; content:!"Host\: mail.google.com"; nocase; 
http_header; content:!"Host\: mail.yahoo.com"; nocase; content:!"Host\: 
webmail.aol.com"; nocase; http_header; content:!"Host\: webmail.juno.com"; 
nocase; http_header; content:!"Host\: webmailb.juno.com"; nocase; 
http_header; content:"multipart/"; nocase; content:"Content-Length\:"; 
nocase; http_header; 
pcre:!"/^Host:\s.*[\.live.com]$/smi"; msg:"http-post-pcre-jr"; 
classtype:policy-violation; sid:1000060; gid:1; rev:4; )
