    I read through the forum for infos on how to limit the attachment size for outgoing mail.
    So far I only found infos on how to do this editing the config files manually but I guess those would be overwritten on next CPanel update.
    Is there a way to add this limit in a way that CPanel updates won't override it? For example in Exim Advanced Config GUI or such?

    Thanks in advance

    Go into Service Configuration -> Exim Configuration Manager...

    On the Advanced Editor tab, scroll about halfway down the page till you see a blue button... Click the "Add additional configuration setting"

    Select the option "message_size_limit" and enter your value. Unless specified, the default is 50M (MB)...

    Hope that helps...
