    it seems that exim configuration is for both incoming and outgoing limit

    is there a way to customize different setting for incoming and outgoing email size limit?

    thank you

    Hello,

    Yes you can set the message limit in exim.conf file by searching or adding message_size_limit = 40M or edit exim configuration through whm >> Exim configuration manager and restart exim service.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Yes, as mentioned in the previous post, the message_size_limit value is modifiable:

    Limit attachment size for SMTP

    However, there's no separate message size option for incoming and outgoing email. If you wanted to setup a custom Exim system filter with a rule that blocks certain messages over a specific size, you can follow the instructions on the following document to setup a custom filter rule:

    How to Customize the Exim System Filter File - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
