552 5.2.3 Message exceeds maximum fixed size (4194304)
Thank's for the link i don't know if that really applies to my problem... I have changed the size in the .conf on Suse and it doesn't seem
to work. Is there a patch i can download for Sendmail that will solve the problem ??
I did a restart of sendmail and i did a SuSeconfig after all changes.How easy is postfix to setup ? I'm thinking of loading a new box with the new Suse maybe that will solve all my problems. Do you have a step by step for postfix ? I have always used sendmail and everybody says postfix is a lot beter. Thank you for all your help.
I read the sendmail.cf from top to bottom and at the bottom of the config file i found the following 0 MaxMessageSize=4194304.
I removed the line from sendmail.cf and it seems to be working again. I can send and receive files over 2Mg again...
I'll be testing this in the future but i'm pretty sure i found the problem thank you for all your help.
