Does anybody know how I can set a limit for exim4 processes because an application send to our smtp server 4000+ mails and crashed it. I try to add


in /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template, but nothing happens.

Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.


I would recommend putting this setting into /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf and then restarting exim.

  • Thanks for your recommendation.It seems that had effect even from exim4.conf.template. – fotag Jun 7 '11 at 12:40
