By default the maximum mail message size sent to an email account on Bubba is 10 MByte. To enlarge the limit you have to edit in the postfix config file main.cf. Do like this:

Log in via ssh and become root.

Edit config file main.cf:

nano /etc/postfix/main.cf

To enlarge the maximum message size limit, add the line:

message_size_limit = 0

Now you have to restart postfix for the changes to be adapted:

/etc/init.d/postfix restart

All done!

To verify the new size, type:

postconf message_size_limit
