Btw. what is -big- message in your system? In 1994 I set the
limits in sendmail.cf to be 20Mb and nobody complains (yet)
But RFC (??? 822) suggests 4 MByte.
While $MB is reasonable, I've had to increase it to 12MB. It's
simply too hard to try to educate users that sending a "small" 10mb
file via email is a bad thing).
Bouncing it every time seems like a good instructional tool.
I used to think so, but then I noticed that people sending these
files had no idea what the size was. And couldn't be educated.
They'd just get mad, and since I am managing the network for a
building, not for a company, it's not like I dictate their IT
policy. Sure, i will give them webDAV access to their websapce, but
webDAV is a long way beyond most users skill set, even though it
looks easier to me than putting 400K of graphics and dancing smilie-
faces into a 14 word email... I mean, I wouldn't even know where to
start to bastardize and email like that, yet they seem to do it
12MB just means I get less whining to deal with.
I abhor large file attachments - though they generally come from
don't want attachments from anyway. Some nifty video? Put it on a
file sharing network or just email the damn URL you found it at in the
first place -- either way would be far more efficient use of bandwidth
(esp. if I'm not interested in the file to begin with <g>).
Oh, I agree. Anything over 1MB on my personal spool tends to get me
irate, but then most of those are from family members.
