Email Size Limit Issue

Postby ROTFL » Sun Dec 28, 2014 2:20 am

Hi Community,

Not sure if this question has been ask before, but I still cannot get the satisfy answer for my question. Why I only able to send/receive an email at 7MB in size, while all setting seem to be allow up to 10MB.

Below are parameter that indicating massage size limit on my server:

zimbra@mx:~$ zmprov gacf | grep zimbraMailContentMaxSize
zimbraMailContentMaxSize: 10240000

zimbra@mx:~$ postconf | grep message_size_limit
message_size_limit = 10240000

zimbra@mx:~$ zmprov gacf | grep zimbraFileUploadMaxSize
zimbraFileUploadMaxSize: 10485760

WEBUI >> Global Setting >> MTA >> Maximum Massage Size (KB) = 10000


My config as follow:

OS: Ubuntu 14 64BIT

Zimbra Collaboration version 8.6.0_GA_1153.FOSS Dec 15, 2014

setup: single server deployment.

Please advise

Try this steps:

su - zimbra
zmprov mcf zimbraMtaMaxMessageSize 20971520
zmprov mcf zimbraFileUploadMaxSize 20971520
zmprov mcf zimbraMailContentMaxSize 52428800
zmprov modifyConfig zimbraMtaMaxMessageSize 52428800
zmcontrol restart

It should work.
