Description Need Real Name 2008-01-16 17:36:07 UTC
postfix-2.4.6-2 and earlier does not handle >2Gb mailbox
despite I have
 postconf |grep mailbox_size_limit
mailbox_size_limit = 0

looks this is a problem with postfix itself not being able to handle >2Gb
mailbox files.
All I need is to have local delivery to mailbox working with large files.
Most F8 programs do have proper large file support.

According to postfix author (see a quote of a message from 2005)
this was a design decision. May be something changed since then.
