Into the logs file of the spamfilter I found the following error what gives the log of a non deliverd email.
(Whitelisted - Email size exceeded MaxMsgSizeForSpamFiltering)
The default value of MaxMsgSizeForSpamFiltering=768
Can you please advice me to enlarge the size of attachments true the spamfiltering ?
version of Spamfilter
Many thanks

That settings is actually used to tell SpamFilter to allow emails thru if they exceed a certain size. Please see the following snippet form our manual:

;Any emails whose text portion exceeds this number of KB will be whitelisted. Most spam emails are small in size, lowering this value may help in reducing the chances of incorrectly blocking valid emails with large attachments. The maximum value that can be specified for this setting is 2147483648 (equal to about 2TB)

Hi Roberto -

just to verify, is this setting influencing total allowed email size (as in the snippet is says the "text portion")?

The snippet from the manual is actually incorrect, sorry. SpamFilter looks at the entire email size (body + headers) and if that email size is over the value of the "MaxMsgSizeForSpamFiltering" then the email will be whitelisted.
