    Default Quota delay notification?

    Hi all, Have done some digging through forums for this but don't seam to be able to find quite what I am looking for.

    My question is this. When a mail is sent to an account that is over its quota the mail is placed in the differed queue, this behavior is fine. What would be nice is if there is a way to notify the sender that there has been a delay in delivering that message. So the sender knows that messages has not been received.

    Many thanks in advance

    Andy

    seems this might lead to a lot of backscatter spam

    Just a thought really, If the message is important the sender will not know the message has been deferred

    have a look here

    Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics - Zimbra :: Wiki

    i think by default zimbra only gives a 452 error which is a temporary delivery error. you can change this to give a permanent error. Neither of htese options will generate a reply to sender directly, but most origin mtas will send a message to the sender.

    like john@1stcompany.com sends a message to mary@2ndcompany.com

    if you have it set to permanent fail, mail.2ndcompany.com will tell mail.1stcompany.com that it had a permanent failure. mail.1stcompany.com will then probably notify john with the standard mail delivery notice message.

    some mtas are configured to send warning messages on temporary failures as well. but the point is that in either of these situations, your zimbra server doesn't send the actual message, it just tells the sender's mta server that either there is a temporary or permanent failure, and it's the sender's mta configuration that determines if and how the sender is notified.
