    How do I increase it and is there any reason not to increase it to...say...20mb?

    if you are using postfix then you can edit the line in /etc/postfix/ with
    message_size_limit = some figure
    . The figure is displayed in byte, so you may put desired figure here.

    Hope it works.

    I cannot find that line in my file but email size is still limited to 4 or 5MB it seems. I imagine that is set somewhere...

    This is the mail error I am trying to avoid getting:

    Then add the line.

    Wouldn't that be adding an additional restriction when I want to increase the limitation?

    No, as postfix has compiled in limits that get overridden by this variable. Please add this line.

    Can it be any number or do I have to do it in specific increments?


    postconf -e 'message_size_limit = 20000000' ?
