    I have a client trying to receive an email that is 24 megs in size. However, CPanel is not allowing it. Her POP account is set to 50 megs of space and is currently using 2 megs of space. Is there a limit to the size of a single email that may be received? If so, can I increase the size limit?

    Regards,
    Trent

    You can try adding the following to exim.conf

    message_size_limit

    Type: string, expanded

    Default: 50MB (or whatever you want)

    Go on, have a guess
    From earlier investigations, Exim on cPanel does not impose a mail size limit.

    However, most MTA's require 2*size of the incoming email to append it to the mailbox file. So, with a 50mb of space and a 24mb email, it may be cutting it too fine. I'd suggest upping their quota temporarily to 75mb and see if that helps.
