Fehler bei »Nachricht wird verschickt«.

DATA-Befehl gescheitert: a message size of 40962 kilobytes exceeds the
size limit of 40960 kilobytes computed for this transaction

just returned from evolution2.32.2-0ubuntu :-(
Please: Don't comment how old it is. If someone knows about the error
you're welcome ...

40Mb mail message!  The message is too big for your mail server. (Just,
by 2kb - I'm surprised your mail server allows anything close to that
size - mine certainly don't.)

The error you see is nothing to do with Evolution, it's just reporting
what the mail server says.

..ahh, got it - so I was wondering about the wrong origin. Sorry Evo :-)
I wasn't aware that limit at my provider. I have to inform him for more
quota :-)
Though it's poor living in the occident, but we have inboxes of 1 GByte
here. Maybe not every provider offers this in the land of
opportunity ...

No, it's not quota on a mailbox or anything, you are trying to send a
single message through the mail system that is over 40Mb - it has
nothing to do with your INBOX size.  Most MTAs have some form of limit
on the size of mail it will accept - you really, really don't want to be
handling unlimited email size, can you imagine what would happen if
someone attached a 4Gb DVD image to an email, think of all the resources
on all the machines that it will use up, and the time spent in moving a
message that size around.

you're right to discern these problems - but not all the providers seem
to do so.
This limit message came from my old alma mater account where they seem
to be aware of these problems.
But for sure I am able to send from my private account (1&1) messages up
to 60-70 MB - so far I tested. I don't want to flood the internet - but
from time to time, we have to send large amounts of radiograph data and
need a quick response ...
