Topic: Specfic throttle limits - cc: / bcc:

==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====

- Web server (Apache or Nginx): NGINX
- Manage mail accounts with iRedAdmin-Pro? Yes
- [IMPORTANT] Related original log or error message is required if you're experiencing an issue.

So I have some questions about sender throttling:

If I want to limit my users to, say, 150 messages per day... How is the limit counted? For example, if the user sends one message that is CC or BCC 20,000 users, does it count as a single message or 20,000?

Second, from a CLI or elsewhere, how can I determine what iredmail thinks of the current throttle threshholds per user? Like if I want to investigate a user and learn how many emails have been sent durring the current throttle period, how can I determine this?

Thank you.

cc/bcc are counted because Postfix will send a request to iRedAPD for each recipient. So one mail with 20000 cc/bcc addresses will be expanded to 20000 requests sent to iRedAPD and check/apply the throttle settings.

Check SQL table "iredapd.throttle_tracking". But it's not recommended to update/modify its values unless you're clearly understand what you're doing.

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