10.3: Enable the postfix Mail Transfer Agent
Authored by: Krazy on Apr 30, '04 02:59:24AM
Having problems with the mailbox size on your local machine? By default its set to around 50Mb. When you exceed this mail wont be delivered, and you will see messages in mail.log like:

Apr 30 18:42:37 myMac postfix/local[2456]: 47E237DF92: to=, relay=local, delay=0, status=bounced (cannot access mailbox /var/mail/foo for user foo. error writing message: File too large)

The solution:

sudo postconf -e "mailbox_size_limit = NEW_SIZE"
sudo SystemStarter restart "SMTP"
replace NEW_SIZE above with the size you want. 204800000 gives you 200Mb.
