As the title reads...

Does anyone know how to limit the file attachment size for mailing lists (only/separately).

We've had a few occurrence with individuals sending very large attachments out to relatively big mailing lists... and the aggregate disk space used by this is obviously enormous.

At the same time, we don't want to limit attachment sizes in general.

Don't immediately see a way to do this in the admin or rules. Anyone?...

From the crickets... it doesn't sound like anyone knows how to do this, or it's not possible.

bump?

It doesn't look like you could do that from the Console GUI. Probably some manualy editing of the .cfg file, but I don't know. You should probably ask Kerio support.

Are you really not setting an attachment size limit? Don't you realize how bad that could be.

I haven't seen any way to manage the attachment size other than the smtp server setting. I agree that such a setting is a good idea but there is no good way to do so to cover all the possible situations. Even a non-mailing list email can have numerous recipients resulting in a large space consumption if sent to the same server. If using POP, It can be uncomfortable for a while. WIth IMAP or MAPI, it can be really bad.

Maybe the limit should be based on something like the result of multiplying the number of recipients (on the current mail server) by the aggregate size of the attachments in the email message. I am not sure if the kerio mail server is able to get all that information at the same time to make that determination.

The important thing is to train users to not regard email as a resource with no space or bandwidth limitations. Otherwise users will try to get around limits by sending large attachments to users separately and you will still have the same problem.
