Hi all,

I have zoneminder installed with postfix that send correctly the email, but I found this error on log file:
019-10-28 20:40:02 zmfilter_3
22753 ERR Unable to send email: Net::CMD (Net::SMTP) DATAEND command failed.Last server message was:5.3.4 Error: message file too bigThis probably represents a problem with newline encoding at /usr/bin/ line 818.
This error is repeated frequently, 3/4 times in a minute.
I have configured my email alert to send video attached, and normally I receive video attached not bigger than 500k.

What is the problem?
May I have an email too big to be sent that zoneminder try to send every time ?
Where are stored the video ready to be sent ?

Are you using modect? You probably have some events that are longer than others, causing it to go over the email limit. What email service are you using? Limits for outbound emails vary. Some popular sites have a 25MB limit.

Videos by default are in /var/cache/zoneminder/ unless you changed it, via either the zm web gui or /etc/zm/zm.conf.
