    i have Ispconfig 2.2.5 installed with quota and everyting works nice.

    until a user stores 50Mb in there mailboxes.

    then for every mail that user is receiving postfix is saying somehting like this : (can't create user output file)

    if i do :

    grep size_limit /etc/postfix/
    body_checks_size_limit = 51200
    bounce_size_limit = 50000
    header_size_limit = 102400
    mailbox_size_limit = 51200000
    message_size_limit = 10240000

    then i see what i beleive is the reason from the can't create user output file.

    the strange this is that this user has "-1" inside its quotas.

    (If the user deleted mesages so that the mailbox was smaller then the 50 Megs then it was receiving mails again.)

    is this a bug or a misconfiguration from my part.

    The installation is on Feudora Core.

    Yes, set the message size limit and mailbox size limit to a higher value.

    Hi Thanks.

    I did that.

    but the value inside /etc/postfix/ is unchanged. however the value inside /etc/postfix/ was changed. (or i should say added. since "mailbox_size_limit" and "message_size_limit" was not in there at all before the command. )

    now im curius about if the changes is working ? which value is used ?
    the /etc/postfix/ or the /etc/postfix/ ?

    I have a similar problem; RH9, Postfix, no ISPConfig, my message_size_limit=30960000

    My system generated a bounce on a 24MB email+attachment, t should not have. The maillog says can't create output to /var/spool/mail/david

    "david" is a file with permissions set to 660, owner david:mail, and has been written to for years without a problem.

    Any ideas?
