Increasing the Maximum lenght of message body.

Bug #266871 reported by Joetravaglione on 2008-01-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
GNU Mailman

Bug Description

I am unable to send out email attachments or change the length of the
message body. When I attempt to change the Maximum length in KB of Message
body, it does not appear as an option I can change. Is there a way to
access it? I am looking for the option under general, but it does not seem
to be there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is max_message_size on the General Options page under Aditional
Settings towards the bottom.

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

I only see 6 settings in the additional settings at the bottom. The
following options can be changed: 1. Emergency moderation of all list
traffic 2. Default options for new members joining this list 3.
(Administrivia filter) Check postings and intercept ones that seem to be
administrative requests? 4. Host name this list prefers for email. 5.
Should messages from this mailing list include the RFC 2369 (i.e. List-*)
headers? Yes is highly recommended. 6. Should postings include the
List-Post: header? There are no other options for changing the size? Do
I have an old version of listserve? Do I have to sign up for a newer
version? My current version is 2.1.5.

Thank you for the comment any additional ideas?

If your Mailman is provided by your hosting provider, I suspect that they
removed the ability for list owners to set max_message_size for their own
reasons. This is in issue you need to take up with your provider.

If this is your own Mailman installation, whatever Mailman you have
installed has been modified to remove this setting. I recommend upgrading
to the latest version from SourceForge.
