Description of problem:
If I do not set the file size limits in main.cf, to make Postfix override the
default settings, Postfix is unable to handle any incoming email. The maillog
complaints about that the maximum size for a incoming mail is larger than the
maximum sixe for a users mailbox.
The problem seemes to be that Postfix the settings for mailbox_size_limit and
message_size_limit in /etc/postfix/main.cf.default is wrong or ignored, when I
did set the settings in /etc/postfix/main.cf, Postfix worked without any problems.
I did put the full report at the URL
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Postfix without altering the default settings for
mailbox_size_limit and message_size_limit
2. Create a user
3. Send a mail to the user, with at least one letter in the body
4. Look for the error messages in /var/log/maillog
Actual Results: A email was recieved and accepted by Postfix, but not forwarded
to any user on the accepting server. The sender do NOT get a errormessage about
Expected Results: A mail should be accepted by Postfix, and forwarded to a
user, or a errormessage should be sent.
I have put the entire /etc/postfix - directory in
http://ketil.homeunix.net:8092/postfix/, with the first maillog from the
installation of Postfix. This installation is a quite fresh and unaltered one,
to keep it simple.
