Postfix Bounce Error
Posted on 2006-04-19
I am running Postfix (2.1.5) and am getting the following Bounce message for a single user -
The NDR is - " [servername] #5.0.0 X-Postfix; cannot access mailbox /var/mail/[username] for user [username]. error writing message: File too large"
The maillog entry is mx1 postfix/local: 2F82D3747AA: to=<[alias]@domain.org.au>, relay=local, delay=1, status=bounced (cannot access mailbox /var/mail/[username] for user [username]. error writing message: File too large)
I have changed "virtual_mailbox_limit = 0" and reloaded the config.. Still getting the same bounce msg..
The users mbox size is - 79227539
Here is the "postconf -n"
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
allow_untrusted_routing = yes
command_directory = /usr/sbin
config_directory = /etc/postfix
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
debug_peer_level = 2
disable_vrfy_command = yes
html_directory = no
mailq_path = /usr/bin/mailq.postfix
manpage_directory = /usr/share/man
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain
mynetworks = 192.168.0.0/32
myorigin = [domain].org.au
newaliases_path = /usr/bin/newaliases.postfix
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix
setgid_group = postdrop
smtpd_banner = myhostname ESMTP $mail_name ($mail_version)
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, check_client_access hash:/etc/postfix/pop-before-smtp, reject_unauth_destination
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
virtual_mailbox_limit = 0
I know that it is specifically related to the mailbox size as I have since POPd the Mailbox (instead of IMAP) and since sucking all the mail off the server I can now succesfully deliver mail to the POP client.. Though this is a temp fix as I need the mail stores to reside on the server - not on client machines..
Assistance would be greatly appreciated..
I have given this 500 Points as the mailbox in question is (naturally) the CEO's and he is getting a little agitated..
