I don't know about once only. You could change your /etc/postfix/ then restart postfix let the mail go through then change the back and restart again. Complicated but Thats all I can think of. Anyone else?

This is at the bottom of my The comments should help you understand it

#Limit users to message and attachments to 20M
message_size_limit = 20971520

#Limit mailbox size to 100M
mailbox_size_limit = 104857600

Also If you are using squirrelmail i got this from


Also in /etc/php.ini is the variable upload_max_filesize ... it is normally set to 2M (that is 2 mb) ... set this to the max size for your attachments....I'll assume 20M

upload_max_filesize = 20M
post_max_size = 20M
memory_limit = 20M
(you may need to adjust the post_max_size and memory_limit to be higher than 20M ... maybe as high as 40M to get 20M attachments.
