Re: exceeded_storage_allocation

It sounds like the destination server and/or user on the server has no more disk space. I think there's nothing you can do about it unless the destination server belongs to you.

Re: exceeded_storage_allocation

is it possible because of to many mail addresses in this mail ?

Re: exceeded_storage_allocation

I doubt it.

I'm not clear on whether it's always a per-user thing or a per-server thing; it means one or both of these:

a. the user at the remote server has a mail quota, and that quota is currently met (i.e., he has no more room)

b. the server itself has run out of disk space with which to store messages (so even if your user has room left in the quota, there's no disk space -- it's like /var=100% for an HP-UX system)

Re: exceeded_storage_allocation

this problem still exists and I cannot find out, where the problem is.

server has enough space and users acoounts are unlimited

I have this problem with only one sender address.

Re: exceeded_storage_allocation

Ok, lets get some context.

What mail server daemon are you using? exim? psotfix? sendmail?

I take it this is from the '/var/log/maillog' ?

What are the logged messages around this error? Please paste without any alteration.

Re: exceeded_storage_allocation

I'm using mickysoft exchange 5.5

one external newsletter sender sometimes could not send us mails from his mail roboter and get these error messages.

Re: exceeded_storage_allocation

I solved this problem.

The external e-mail client sent one very large unterminated line,
and it filled a 1000 byte buffer that the proxy uses.
We allow at our firewall only the 1000-byte line size
Going over the 1000 byte limit of this buffer is unacceptable to the SMTP proxy, and it will be rejected.
The SMTP RFC explicitly states that the length of a single unterminated line can be 1000 bytes, no larger.

I've informed the sender to correct this problem.
