Mailing List issue not forwarding.


Mar 29, 2009
I have created a mailing list. When an approved sender sends out a message with a large group of non mailing list members cc'd in their email the message does not go out to our mailing list.

The error message is Reason: Too many recipients to the message. If I approve the message it then sends a copy of it to all the persons on the senders cc'd list. Thus they get the message twice once from the sender and then again from our mailing list, even though they are not members of our mailing list.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hello :)

Check to make sure the following values under the "ACL Options" tab in "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Exim Configuration Manager" are not limiting your sending ability:

Maximum message recipients (soft limit)
Maximum message recipients before disconnect (hard limit)

Also, within Mailman, click on "Privacy Options". Then click on "Recipient filters". You can increase the value for the following option:

"Ceiling on acceptable number of recipients for a posting"

Thank you.
