How do you increase the Exim email server attachment size limit on a Cent OS 4.5 Linux web server?  I would like to send emails with file attachments up to 20 MB in size but the server has a 10 MB limit right now.

To increase the allowed file attachment size in Exim you logon as root.
Go to:  /etc/exim.conf
Open it in your favorite Linux text editor.  Mine is nano, so nano exim.conf.  
Then change the typical hosted server default "message_size_limit=10M" to whatever you want like 15M.  
Finish by restarting the Exim email server.

in the exim configuration file I did not find this option anywhere "message_size_limit=10M".  I have cPanel.
