I've been checking the forum on how to automatically reject messages  size
at this link:


The function:

      * if bodylen/1024.0 > mlist.max_message_size:
            raise Errors.RejectMessage, Utils.wrap(

Only this class (function) only works for registered mail list, you would
have to do to members not registered on the list?

And finally could be administrator or refer to the list owner's email
rejected ?

some could help me?
