Description of problem:
When the files in /var/spool/mail reach a critical aggregate size,
spamassassin fails to deliver mail. I use postfix and I have the
default procmailrc include the spamassassin-spamc.rc. Works fine until
one of my users mail spool gets too large. If I move the large file or
deactivate the spamd service, the messages are delivered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and configure postfix + spamassassin + procmail
2. Make a really big file (>10MB) in /var/spool/mail
Actual Results: No email is delivered to any account
Expected Results: Mail gets through
mailbox_size_limit = 1000000000
Your postfix must be configured to allow bigger mail boxes. This is
not a bug.
Hmmm... that would not explain the interaction with spamassassin. Why
does disabling spamassassin allow mail to go through when it
previously did not get through?
I am not entirely sure what you mean. If you are sure this is a
spamassassin problem, please talk to upstream spamassassin. Refer to
this bug URL and provide more details. Otherwise I believe Fedora
cannot help you further.
