Hello -

I keep getting skip size exceeded when people are sending large attachments. I am not using the attachment filter just SpamAssassin.

Any help??


What is causing this? How can I change the size?

Thanks

Not to worry, it is just that SpamAssassin does not look at this mail any more, because it is too large.

You can increase the skip size (check "advanced options" at the start of the SpamAssassin filter configuration dialog), but you shouldn't.

SpamAssassin resource usage grows exponentially with message size, and it is recommended to check no mails larger than 256k.

Thanks for the info.

I have an address that keeps sending emails and I get a message skip size exceeded but the mail never comes in. Is it the program killing the message?

To find out what's happening, turn on detailed logging (if you haven't already). Make sure the failed transfer is logged. If the log is not self-explaining, please send nospamtoday.log (or the interesting part of that file) to nstsupport@byteplant.com (no need to post it in public).
