Subject: Problem with big file in mail spool dir


I'm running a slackware 8.1 with popa3d (package distribution). One of my 
user is not able read this mail but all works if he uses my webmail.

The problem is that I have this error "-ERR" when I try to do a connection 
manually on the pop3 server just next this command "user xxxxx"

If i put the file on an other server with a other pop3 server it's ok. I have 
a long delai (between 1 and 2 minutes) to do the connexion but I'm able to 
get all mails.

The size of the mail file is very big (about 130 megs) and a mail contents an 
attachement of 100 megs).

Anyone have an idea? I will probably limit the max mail size in sendmail but 
I don't kown if the problem is the big mail file or the big attachement. Is 
it a limitation of pop3ad for size of mail file or attachement?

Thanks for your help!
