Topic: Quota exceeded???

I have one user who is not receiving any email. Log file is full of hundreds of these:

Apr 26 19:37:41 mail postfix/smtpd[15525]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from xxx.yyy.zzz[xx.yyy.zzz.aaa]: 450 4.7.1 <blah@domain.com>: Recipient address rejected: Policy Rejection- Quota Exceeded.; from=<blah@otherdomain.com> to=<blah@domain.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<blah.otherdomain.net>

The thing is, his quota is not anywhere near reached. his quota is 4GB, and only 277MB used.

I tried to disable the quota checking completely, (virtual_overquota_bounce=no in main.cf) but even that seems to be ignored; Email keeps getting rejected with above message.

Any help how to fix this, or disable quota until I can fix this?

Kind of urgent, please help...


Re: Quota exceeded???

This is policyd quota, you can find it in MySQL database 'policyd' or 'postfixpolicyd'.

Re: Quota exceeded???

Hi Zhang,

Sorry for bringing up old thread.

In my policyd.conf, SENDERTHROTTLE=0

but still my users are being banned due to sudden surge in email sending ...

I increased the _count_max column in throttle_rcpt, now it is working fine.

My question is ...

This is for incoming emails or outgoing email? and why SENDERTHROTTLE=0 is not working ...
