Mailing List: Message too long (>40000 chars)Last Modified: Sep 18, 2013, 5:21 pm
If you're using Majordomo to send messages to a mailing list and you run into this error in you exim mainlog:

2013-09-18 06:41:30 1KM9Zz-00037V-4H <= owner-list@domain.com U=majordomo P=local S=321808 T="BOUNCE list@domain.com: Message too long (>40000 chars)" from for user@domain.com

Then you'd simply need to increase the limit.

Go to:

User Level -> Mailing Lists -> for the given list, click View


Lastly, above the top table is text that says:

To change list and digest settings, click here

Click the link to edit the settings, and change 40000 to a higher value.  It's the number of bytes for the entire message, including headers, body, and any attachments.
