Topic: postfix conf error

Hi ZhangHuangbin,
searching in /var/log/maillog for other reason, I've found this error.

Apr  8 14:40:03 mx postfix/local[32003]: fatal: main.cf configuration error: mailbox_size_limit is smaller than message_size_limit

What's the right way to fix it?

Re: postfix conf error

*) It's clear in the log, "mailbox_size_limit is smaller than message_size_limit". You should either increase value of Postfix parameter "mailbox_size_limit" in /etc/postfix/main.cf, or decrease message_size_limit.

*) When you got Postfix related error, please post output of command "postconf -n".

*) Please post iRedMail related issues/questions in iRedMail support forum, not this one, iRedAdmin-Pro support.

Re: postfix conf error

Hi Zhang,
thank you for your reply.
Yes, it's clear in the log what's the problem... my question is because I don't know if this settings may be some undesired effect with the settings set per user in iredadmin pro (this is the reason because I've posted in iRedAdmin-Pro support)

So, I have decrease the value of message_size_limit, because mailbox_size_limit not there in my main.cf
Bbelow you can see the output of postconf -n
