Re: message file too big

it should be size of single message.

It can be set in postfix (try command: postconf -n | grep size) or policyd sender throlltling.

P.S. it's strongly recommended that ask technical questions in our forum instead of mailing me, so that you can get help from more users.

Hi Zhang,

When user send a mail of 10 MB or more I am getting this error. All users use MS Outlook as mail client.

As per your message I changed
in file /etc/postfix-policyd.conf
SENDERMSGSIZE=25971520
in file /etc/postfix-policyd_sender_throttle.conf
SENDERMSGSIZE=25728640
in file /etc/postfix/main.cf
mailbox_size_limit = 0

But now also I am receiving the same error message as

552 5.3.4 Error: message file too big

Please help

Regards
Philip

Re: message file too big

http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html

Read message_size_limit and mailbox_size_limit

Edit /etc/postfix/main.cf and add the following line
message_size_limit = 20971520 <--(20MB in bytes for example)


Also adjust mailbox_size_limit  so it is no less than the message_size_limit
mailbox_size_limit = 20971520

postfix reload
