    Hi,

    when I try to send some messages larger than let's say 5 mb i receive this error in my email client:

    Where I can setup maximum size per message?

    Have you actually searched the forums a little bit?
    postconf | grep size_limit
    will tell you what you need to know, and
    postconf -e
    will help you set new values once the need arises
    regards,
    marc

    Althought

    Code:
    postconf | grep size_limit
    returns various values,

    Code:
    postconf -e
    do nothing.

    It should be:

    Code:
     postconf -e message_size_limit=20240000
    where
    Code:
    20240000
    is new maximum message size in bytes.

    I was only trying to bring you on the right track.
    I guess just by giving someone complete command lines to execute, the learning factor is just about zero.

    I do not want to start a crusade here...
    I only see what some people here are trying to do. Namely starting a hosting business or whatever, then installing ISPConfig, without any idea what they are doing (in the underlying system). And then, whilst they are probably earning money with it, relying on someone else, namely Till + Co., to do support for free for them here (respect!).
    I didn't mean it personal but sometimes that makes me angry. Try to learn it, or leave it alone.
    Regards,

    Try to coll down a little bit.

    If you have anything to say regarding to your approach to ISPConfig & education/learning about it open a new thread.

    Don't do it in this technical orientated threads.

    Cheers,

    Nenad

    Sorry to you both, but I'm going to lock this tread before it really gets out of hand.
