- Plesk for Linux
Emails with large file in attachment (more than 256 KB) are not checked by SpamAssassin. When such an email is received, the following message appears in
CONFIG_TEXT: plesk spamc: skipped message, greater than max message size (256000 bytes)
These emails are also ignored by the mailbox-level blacklist.
By default, SpamAssassin does not check messages with attachments larger than 256KB. This value provides normal server loading. A larger value may cause heavy load on a server when processing large files.
The mailbox-level blacklist is SpamAssassin blacklist. When SpamAssassin ignores emails with large files and does not scan them, it does not check the domain name against its blacklist. Therefore, such messages are delivered.
