RE: Zmailer problem
As far as I can tell.. it seems that as the queue size increases the max
files increases linearly.. so there doesn't appear to be a way I can get
zmailer to accept an infinite (or limited by disk space) queue. Is there
any way to limit the number of files the scheduler uses?

You are not saying what the system is, I presume it is Linux from
You might need to tune your system resource settings up somewhat.
echo 12000 > /proc/sys/fs/file-max
If the situation repeats, add another about 4000 ...

Yes. I upped the file-max, and didn't reboot...
