This could be in relation to bug #100616
Comment 2 John Dennis 2004-01-21 18:09:51 EST
You can't set the message_size_limit higher than the
mailbox_size_limit so that might be one reason setting the
message_size_limit is not having an effect.

Please do the following for me so I can diagnose this.

run "postconf -n" capture the output and attach it to this bug.

After restarting postfix (e.g. service postfix restart) look in
/var/log/maillog, do you see any errors or warnings?
Comment 3 John Dennis 2004-02-24 19:53:13 EST
I haven't heard anything back, I'm closing this out. I don't believe
there is a postfix bug here, I think this is a configuration issue.
