Hi,

our users have sometimes quite different ideas about needed mail sizes :-/
To accomplish all different needs, I would like to

- have rather large max sizes on system level
- have a pretty small max size setting global in iRedMail using Throttle plugin
- adjust on domain level with Throttle plugin

Unfortunately, I have at least two problems with that:

1) Where do I find the global throttle settings in iRedAdmin V 3.4?

2) Following https://docs.iredmail.org/change.mail.a … .size.html I try to set postfix defaults with

postconf -e message_size_limit=104857600

even after restarting postfix, checking the settings gives other values:

# postconf -d | grep message_size_limit
message_size_limit = 10240000

/etc/postfix/main.cf has another value...

# Default message_size_limit.
message_size_limit = 36700160

Can you help me, please?

System -> Anti Spam -> Throttle

"-d" is default settings. You must use "-n" to read from /etc/postfix/main.cf.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

thx, that worked. But I had to change the values in main.cf. The way outlined in the doc did not work.

What do you mean not work? "postconf -e" modifies main.cf directly.
