    Unless you've set any limits, there shouldn't be any.

    What are your concerns exactly?

    One of my customers asked me this question. I just want to find a way to check it on our server. I just came to our company. I do not know if someone set limit on our server before.

    You can set your limits in your WHM / exim configuration > go to advanced editor and in the first window you can limit the size by adding this

    message_size_limit = 10M
    or
    message_size_limit = 5M
    or
    whatever size you choose

    Thanks for your help!
    When i go to the place that you told me, i got this information in the first window(it is called "#!!# cPanel Exim 4 Config")

    split_spool_directory = yes
    hostlist rv_relay_hosts = net-iplsearch;/etc/relayhosts
    acl_smtp_connect = acl_check_host

    acl_smtp_mail = acl_check_sender


    So you mean i can put "message_size_limit = 10M" here?
    1. message_size_limit = 10M means i can send/receive 10M message?
    2. if i do not set limits here, i can send/receive any size of message?

    May i ask another question? I saw "smtp_accept_max = 100" in the same page. What does this mean?

    smtp_accept_max :

    This is the maximum number of simultaneous incoming SMTP calls Exim is prepared to accept.
