Hi,

Got a problem running xmail 1.23 running on fedora 4.

All the mailboxes ive set up work ok (can log into them, send email from them), but any email you try to send to these addresses bounces with the response:

552 - Requested mail action aborted: exceeded storage allocation <email>

The individual accounts user.tab has "MaxMBSize" set to "100000". Ive tried changing this to all sorts os values (even zero which i presume is unlimited). It doesnt seem to make any difference.

Ive tried changing the permissions of the mailbox & user folders to all sorts, but hasnt made any difference.

I did restart the service every time I changed anything.

The server has loads of free disk space & memory.

Ive set up xmail on many windows servers with no problem. This is my first attempt at a linux install though.

Have I missed something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Jon

Unless you specified -Mm in the command line options, XMailserver uses the folder "maildir" for mail delivery in Linux, while the default in Windows is "mailbox". If that folder doesn't exist, then you might get this message (not sure).

So if you copied folders from a windows install to a Linux install, you should add the -Mm to the command line.

And if that doesn't work: check if MailRoot and all sub folders are owned by root.

Great!

The -Mm in the startup script did the trick.

Thanks v much :-)
