    Hi,

    I'm having problem with the moderator request.
    Every time someone sends an oversize email, i will only receive the email to approve 24 hours later.
    Is there any way to set the the approval duration?
    Some emails which have to be sent immediately will only be sent when i do the approval which is 24 hours later.
    Appreciate the help.
    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    While logged into the Mailman administrative panel, browse to the "General Options" area. You can modify the value for the following option:

    "Maximum length in kilobytes (KB) of a message body. Use 0 for no limit."

    This will allow you to ensure messages over a specific size are not automatically queued or deleted.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I want to be able to set a limit on the attachment size as i do not want users to send big bulky attachment.
    I have set it to 20MB.

    As for users who are sending in more then 20MB, their email will have to wait for moderator approval before the email can be send.
    Eg: User send an email with the size of 25MB at 1530HRS on 21 Nov 2013.
    List administrator will only receive email to approve email on 22 Nov 2013 0930HRS.

    Is there any way for administrator to receive the approval email immediately?

    Thanks.

    The mailman cron jobs are stored in the following file:

    Code:
    /var/spool/cron/mailman
    You can modify this file to change the times and frequency that mailman tasks are completed.

    Thank you.

    You can manually edit the file with a text editor such as "vi". EX:

    Code:
    vi /var/spool/cron/mailman
    You will see cron jobs with numerical values that you can edit. Cron jobs are documented at:

    cron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Thank you.
