Setting mail file limit
Posted on 2003-12-10
Located in /var/mail I have a mailbox file that likes to out of control when it comes to file size. At one point it was reaching into the 2gig area and ended up taking away all my free blocks preventing package installs.
My question, is there a way of placing block or filesize limit on individual mailboxes? I have checked into the sendmail settings and found MinFreeBlock but even set to the default 100 it didn't seem to prevent the one mail box from taking up all the free blocks on the drive. So I'm wondering if there is not another way I can focus just on control of single mailbox usage?
