Hello,

I have set in WHM the max number of mails that a domian can sent as 300. My question if a domain has a mailing list that has 1000 members, will that mailing list work?

Regards,
David

It will send warning XX mails exceeded per hour mail discarded if it queued them kind of defeat the purpose of setting a max emails per hour

Go on, have a guess
Well, it sends that as part of the SMTP conversation, not as an email (i.e. it's an SMTP failure code) and so if the sender is paying attention (i.e. if they're not using a script) then they'll see the rejections. If they're using a script which doesn't trap for SMTP sending errors, then as far as they're concerned the emails are lost to the void.

Mailman will put them in queue to resend to the mail server. I know I can have Mailman send emails and it will queue them for laster delivery - and it is not exim that queues them - just start mailman with exim disabled and you can see that mailman will send the messages later.

Simple enough to run a test. User /var/cpanel/maxemails to set the max emails for a test domain really low (eg 10), then send out to a list with 20 people on it. Make sure you put lots of your email addresses in the list, and check to see that the later ones get copies. If you want, use a wildcard delivery on a domain to allow you to "make up" addresses like [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and check which ones get delivered.

Post your results, I'm sure many others are interested!
