Default Postfix quota problems.

Hi.

i have Ispconfig 2.2.5 installed with quota and everyting works nice.

until a user stores 50Mb in there mailboxes.

then for every mail that user is receiving postfix is saying somehting like this : (can't create user output file)

if i do :

grep size_limit /etc/postfix/main.cf.default
body_checks_size_limit = 51200
bounce_size_limit = 50000
header_size_limit = 102400
mailbox_size_limit = 51200000
message_size_limit = 10240000

then i see what i beleive is the reason from the can't create user output file.

the strange this is that this user has "-1" inside its quotas.

(If the user deleted mesages so that the mailbox was smaller then the 50 Megs then it was receiving mails again.)

is this a bug or a misconfiguration from my part.

The installation is on Feudora Core.

Yes, set the message size limit and mailbox size limit to a higher value.

Hi Thanks.

I did that.

but the value inside /etc/postfix/main.cf.default is unchanged. however the value inside /etc/postfix/main.cf was changed. (or i should say added. since "mailbox_size_limit" and "message_size_limit" was not in there at all before the command. )

now im curius about if the changes is working ? which value is used ?
the /etc/postfix/main.cf.default or the /etc/postfix/main.cf ?

main.cf will be used.

main.cf.default is a backup copy of the original settings that has been created.

So your new settings are being used.

Unhappy

I have a similar problem; RH9, Postfix, no ISPConfig, my message_size_limit=30960000

My system generated a bounce on a 24MB email+attachment, t should not have. The maillog says can't create output to /var/spool/mail/david

"david" is a file with permissions set to 660, owner david:mail, and has been written to for years without a problem.

Any ideas?
