I am unable to send out email attachments or change the length of the message body. When I attempt to change the Maximum length in KB of Message body, it does not appear as an option I can change. Is there a way to access it? I am looking for the option under general, but it does not seem to be there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

    It is max_message_size on the General Options page under Aditional Settings towards the bottom.

    Maximum length in kilobytes (KB) of a message body. Use 0 for no limit.
    (Edit max_message_size)

    I only see 6 settings in the additional settings at the bottom. The following options can be changed: 1. Emergency moderation of all list traffic 2. Default options for new members joining this list 3. (Administrivia filter) Check postings and intercept ones that seem to be administrative requests? 4. Host name this list prefers for email. 5. Should messages from this mailing list include the RFC 2369 (i.e. List-*) headers? Yes is highly recommended. 6. Should postings include the List-Post: header? There are no other options for changing the size? Do I have an old version of listserve? Do I have to sign up for a newer version? My current version is 2.1.5.

    Thank you for the comment any additional ideas?

    If your Mailman is provided by your hosting provider, I suspect that they removed the ability for list owners to set max_message_size for their own reasons. This is in issue you need to take up with your provider.

    If this is your own Mailman installation, whatever Mailman you have installed has been modified to remove this setting. I recommend upgrading to the latest version from SourceForge.
