Kavi Mailing List Manager Help
The Set Maximum Allowed Message Size tool is used to set different message sizes limits for different mailing lists and temporarily raise the limit to allow a specific message to be sent out. This tool gives the organization the opportunity to manage bandwidth consumption at the list level. Message size caps encourage more economical use of bandwidth by preventing users from emailing excessively large attachments. The cap can be raised when the organization decides to make an exception for a particular message, then set back to a lower level after this message goes through.
When files are attached to email, they are encoded as text, which inflates the size. For example, a file that is 3.8 MB (megabytes) on your local file server may creep over the 5 MB limit after base 64 encoding.
Set different message sizes limits for different mailing lists.
Temporarily raise the message sizes cap to allow a large message to be distributed through a mailing list.
