I use fetchmail to download mail from a number of sources. As I
understand it, fetchmail delivers to exim4.
Recently I received an outsize e-mail. AIUI exim4 rejected it, but it
remained on the server and fetchmail kept retrying it, until I deleted
it by hand. The sender got quite a lot of rejection messages as a
Where do I need to make what change to avoid this situation?
Should it be a matter of coordinating fetchmail's size limit with
exim4's, or getting fetchmail to recognise that no means no?
