Is mailman now honoring the per hour limit?

    Having read just about all the mailman threads on this forum in the past, I was under the impression that mailman doesn't honor the per hour limits set in Tweak Settings - so if you have limited to server to 500 outgoing emails per domain per hour, mailman can get around that limitation with lists of over 500 subscribers.

    However, a customer of ours is reporting now that his mailing list of over 2000 subscribers is not working, and the errors in the exim log are similar to what is returned if you exceed the per hour limit (unroutable mail domain). He reports that he can reduce the size of his mailing list to 2 subscribers (one of which is his address), and it works fine then, but as soon as he adds the other ~2000 back in, a message sent to the list does not reach his address. (And has an unroutable mail domain error for the message sent to his address in the logs).

    I'm just wondering if mailman has been brought into line and is honoring the hourly limits?

    I assume you have your answer already, but the answer to that is yes!

    In checking my mail logs I found the 'limit exceeded" message on my domain. I searched forever not realizing I had this limit set in Tweak Settings.

    Anyway, hope you fixed this by now, somehwere in here was some info on setting limits per domain through shell.

    Create a maxemails file:

    /var/cpanel/maxemails


    After creation of maxemails, set the individual domain(s) that you wish to be different from your settings that you have in Tweak Settings:

    domain.dom=5000
    domain3.com=55

    Hope this helps,
    Ron
