Ah, thanks! That's a much better way to do it.

I start mailman as /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mailman start I put ulimit -a in that script, and the values were the same as previous reported. # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mailman start cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited file size (512-blocks, -f) unlimited data seg size (kbytes, -d) 524288 stack size (kbytes, -s) 65536 core file size (512-blocks, -c) unlimited max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited locked memory (kbytes, -l) unlimited max user processes (-u) 5547 open files (-n) 11095 virtual mem size (kbytes, -v) unlimited sbsize (bytes, -b) unlimited > Perhaps it's something about the attachment itself.

Mailman values don't budge. None of the mailman processes go over about 8.5M, which is what they are during idle time. > Python and mailman presumably came from ports?

(It's just a SWAG, and could be wrong!). I saw that too, and am currently running with it enabled. It doesn't seem to make a difference though.
