    Timed out while sending end of data

    Greetings fellow Postfixians, happy Friday (If its Friday where you are)

    I got the following message, and both of the MTA's involved are Postfix.

    -=> (Timed out while sending end of data -- message may be sent more than
    once)

    And why yes the messages are getting duplicated or sent twice sometimes.

    I am looking for an explanation. I am thinking I don't have enough
    processor on one of the systems.


    Regards,

    I suggest you turn off the body_checks in the main.cf file. Postfix
    needs very little CPU power in order to receive and deliver mail.

    timed out while sending end of data

    Hello,

    We are operating a test server for e-mail on a NATed LAN behind a
    (hated) SOHO firewall device. However, when sending mail with
    attachments to certain domains, comcast.net for example, sending fails
    with a "timed out while sending end of data" error, and the SOHO
    generates the following log entries for each failed message:

    12/20/2004 10:03:06.400 IPSec packet too big our.wan.ip.address
    comcast.server.address
    12/20/2004 10:03:06.544 ARP timeout 0.0.0.0 our.wan.ip.address

    We do not use IPsec. The only tunneling used is PPPoE for our DSL
    connection. I have read about improperly configured routers breaking
    PMTU-D and causing this error, but we only experience the problem when
    sending larger messages to certain domains, and ICMP type three is
    allowed in and out of our LAN. Apologies in advance if, as I suspect,
    this is not a postfix problem at all, but a network engineering problem;
    if so, can somebody put me onto the path of enlightenment? I'm stumped
    by this one. Any help would be appreciated.
