incoming message size ignored?

Hi,
I am running gw 8.01 . i have my incoming message sized limited in my default class of service limited to 5,000k I just saw in my receive queue a 22meg message file. does anyone know why I would have a 22meg file there? Is there any issue with the incoming message size being ignored?

thanks

And did it deliver? Just because it's in the queue doesn't mean
anything.

Massimo,
Humm, thats interesting. Here is more info. I am using an external spam filter so I have ServiceQueue's set up. My spam filter will choke on a 22meg file. thats why I limited the incoming to 5meg. I was under the impression that when you limit the qwia to 5meg (for example) that it would throw away anything larger...is that not the case? do you know how this works?

thanks

Re: incoming message size ignored?

If it's in GWIA's receive queue, then I suspect that the sending SMTP
server does not support the ESMTP SIZE extension. If it did, it would
declare the message size on the MAIL FROM command,

MAIL FROM:<skippy@blah.com> SIZE=12345

Then if the size is over GWIA's allowed limit, GWIA would reject the
message. HOWEVER.... if the ESMTP SIZE extension isn't utilized,
GWIA has no way to know the size of the message before receive it
completely, so it will accept it into the receive directory, then
determine the size when it converts it to a GW messsage, which in your
case is a bad thing as your 3rd party app has to process it first.

Sorry, I don't see a solution other than to modify your spam filter
software or look for a different spam solution.
