    Hello,

    We have mailing list going to 1500 people and one of the local cable companies here (charter.net) limits incoming messages to 100 INCOMING messages at a time from a single IP.

    Is there a setting somewhere to limit max sessions ?

    We do not want to limit the outgoing messages per hour because this does not affect other domains.

    thank you.

    I'm sure I've seen something like this in Exim, do some searching and I'm confident you'll find it.

    ckh - what you mentioned is how to limit/unlimit emails per hour sent by a domain. What he's asking is how to limit the number of email addresses exim tries to send to in one outgoing connection.

    I don't think you can put the limit on just one domain though. With the maxemails per hour you can limit it to one domain and not effect anything else.

    Go on, have a guess
    It may well be possible, but the OP will probably have to trawl exim.org to find out how as that's something beyond anything that the cPanel configuration provides. I've only seen it myself on a global basis (i.e. transactions per connection for all connections).
