MailScanner per user mail size limit

thanks for response. I have done as suggested below. I changed the line
to read:Maximum Attachment Size =
I created a rule file contaiining the following:
From: doron at crc.co.za 1024
FromOrTo: default -1
so in theory that should block anything from me bigger than 1k. I have
also restarted MailScanner but it does not block it nothing. I have sent
a couple of attachments above 200k but still nothing. I turned Debug =
yes so i could check for errors and nothing.
I see the correct size reporting from sendmal from=<doron at crc.co.za>,
size=317660. Is there anything else I am missing ?

I have MailScanner 4.50.15 running on a FreeBSD 4.11 machine. All is
working perfectly. I have read through the docs on creating per user
mail limits but until now I have still not been able to make it work. I
would like the rule file to control mail size limits for each user.
Are there any problems with this ?
Could someone provide me a example rule file or any hints/docs would be
Thanks in advance
This shoudl work for you.
Create this file "MaximumAttachmentSize.rules" in your "rules"
directory and modify your MailScanner.conf as noted.
# File Location/Name:
# This is where you can build a ruleslist
# that allows you to specify attachment size limits in bytes
# In MailScanner.conf change:
# "Maximum Attachment Size = -1"
# "Maximum Attachment Size = %rules-dir%/MaximumAttachmentSize.rules"
# Example values, adjust as needed
# 1k = 1024 bytes
# 10k = 10240 bytes
# 100K = 102400 bytes
# 1MB = 1024000 bytes
# 10MB = 10240000 bytes
# 100MB = 102400000 bytes
# 250MB = 256000000 bytes
# 500MB = 512000000 bytes
# 1GB = 1024000000 bytes
# Size limits and Default should be smaller than the partition
# where they are temporarily stored. ;-)
# Set addresses/domains to be limited as follows:
# Direction Pattern Size Limit
# From: user at good.domain.com 1024000 # Limit FROM specified user to
# From: *@friendly.domain.com 10240000 # Limit FROM specified domain
# From: 123.234.567.2 1024000 # Limit FROM IP address
# From: 123.234. 1024000 # Limit FROM IP range
# From: /^192\.168\.13\./ 1024000 # Limit FROM IP range to 1MB
# To: abc at xyz.com 0 # No Attachments
allowed TO this user
# To: *@yahoo.com 1024000 # Limit all TO this
Domain to 1MB
To: user1 at your.domain 102400 # Limit FROM specified user to
To: user2 at your.domain 1024000 # Limit FROM specified user to 1MB
To: user3 at your.domain 10240000 # Limit FROM specified user to 10MB
FromOrTo: default -1 # Default, No attachment
