Common SMTP message size limits

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/08

After a 2018 discussion with a “zorgkantoor” (Dutch for office that arranges for special long term health care needs, successor of AWBZ) about their very low (10 megabyte) SMTP message size limit – even though they expect scanned PDF documents.

Their web-care team posed this limit as normal, so I made a list of limits in their peer group, common world-wide and well-ranked Dutch internet providers.

My plan is to check the progression of these limits over time.

Note these are the bruto message sizes including encoded attachments. Since encoding in [WayBack] MIME Base64 – Wikipedia has a overhead of at least 37% (encoded size is at least 1.37 the original size), the unencoded maximum size is less than 73% of what is listed below.

A docker container that pulls the PA server for Windows and steps how to attach to it and a video showing how to do this: [WayBackDebugging Delphi applications inside a Windows Docker container – yeiei.net

In SQL Server use `SET NOCOUNT ON` so tools taking the last modified record count won’t be confused by your trigger.

TL;DR: in SQL Server use SET NOCOUNT ON so tools taking the last modified record count won’t be confused by your trigger.

mail.com (handled by gmx.com) can reject SMTP connections as early as in the EHLO stage

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/06

I found this in one of my logs a a while ago:

Error when executing EHLO command for domain mail.com on SMTP server mx00.mail.com.
(554, 'mail.com (mxgmxus007) Nemesis ESMTP Service not available\nNo SMTP service\nBad DNS PTR resource record.\nFor explanation visit http://postmaster.gmx.com/en/error-messages?ip=37.153.243.242&c=rdns')

It means that gmx.de / mail.com are among the strictest email handling providers I know. I don’t blame them: EHLO is at the start of an extended SMTP session.

At [WayBack] Error messages | GMX Postmaster it indicates:

5xy Bad DNS PTR resource record

Emails from your email server were rejected because the PTR Resource Record (PTR-RR) of your IP address does not follow our guidelines. Possible reasons for this can be:
