    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    PRODUCT, VERSION, OPERATING SYSTEM, ARCHITECTURE

    Plesk 10.4.4 MU#26 OpenSuse 11.4 x64

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

    Message Size Limit can be set by Plesk Mailserver Configuration and didnt check if mailbox_size_limit is set at server configuration.

    postfix didnt start, mail.info prints out "fatal: main.cf configuration error: mailbox_size_limit is smaller than message_size_limit"

    STEPS TO REPRODUCE

    The problem starts, IF mailbox_size_limit is set by system default or by admin at /etc/postfix/main.cf

    ACTUAL RESULT

    postfix refused to start

    EXPECTED RESULT

    Maybe Plesk should set mailbox_size_limit=0 to avoid any problems, at least ... the mailboxes sizes are controlled by other plesk services.

    ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

    Could you please clarify a little bit what do you mean
    ? Is this parameter was specified manually in Postfix config or it is default Postfix config for OpenSUSE?

    The Postfix mailbox_size_limit of the Plesk installation in main.cf is 512000.
    If the message size manually edited in the Plesk backend postfix give the error "fatal: main.cf configuration error: mailbox_size_limit is smaller than message_size_limit".

    A quick fix is to set "mailbox_size_limit = 0" (unlimited), so can you please include this fix?!

    Due to this problem I lost all the emails sent to me after a 3 day downtime due to a migration to 10.4.4
