iRedMail. Changing the size of a mail attachment

For example, I’ll take the installed iRedMail-1.6.8 and change the maximum size of the mail attachment.

First let’s change the Postfix configuration:

nano /etc/postfix/
message_size_limit = 31457280
mailbox_size_limit = 31457280
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

Then in PHP-FPM:

nano /etc/php/8.1/fpm/php.ini
memory_limit = 256M;
upload_max_filesize = 30M;
post_max_size = 32M;
service php8.1-fpm restart

In Roundcube:

nano /opt/www/roundcubemail/config/
$config['max_message_size'] = '30M';

In the Nginx web server settings:

nano /etc/nginx/conf-enabled/client_max_body_size.conf
client_max_body_size 30m;
service nginx restart

Done, now you can send an email attachment up to the specified size via an email client or the roundcube web interface.
