This would be something you configure in the mail daemon (sendmail),
not in majordomo. But it's hard to think of a reasonable
configuration that would stop a 45k message nowadays. At my last job
I drew the line at 10M, but even that was too draconian to some people.
What happens if you send a plain message (no attachments) that size?
And when it fails, does it bounce or what? What does the sendmail log
say, did sendmail ever see it?
Skip> By the way, is there a BUUG meeting this Thursday?
I think so, reminder: we intended to exchange GPG key signatures.
By the way: I am trying to help, but as others have already said, the
unwrapped lines are irritating. If Eudora can't do this for you,
how about switching to a mail program that can? Though in my
experience Eudora is among the better PC clients, and should have this
