Yes i am already using this line in my /etc/tcp.smtp but the mail is
not returned immediately to the sender infact it gets queued and qmail
keeps on trying to deliver it in the mailbox until the queuelifetime
expired.I want to send it back immediately. My /etc/tcp.smtp line is:


I am using CHKUSER_MBXQUOTA="95" the mail will be returned to the
sender during smtp negotiation if the user's mailbox is already 95%
full and if lets say the mailbox is 70% full and the total mailbox
size is 1MB and i send a mail of size 500KB to that mailbox the mail
will be queued and returned to the sender after the expiry of

I hope i have clear the situation.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
