Description of problem:
Emails that are sent to local users that are over 5 meg hand the server. Even
if the setting message_size_limit is set higher. The server then hangs on all
email after it gets a message over this size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Semd email over 5 meg
Expected Results: mailq show files waiting to be delivered.
This could be in relation to bug #100616
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?
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.
