Kiwize Description

Kiwize is a filter for Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS and EIMS X) to manage blocking of any email based on the total size of the email, accomplished by a fully customizable set of rules. These rules allow different email addresses, domains, etc., to have different maximum email sizes they are allowed to receive, increasing significantly the robustness and customizability of any EIMS installation.

Filtering based on total email size can be done discretely for different MAIL FROM and RCPT TO values. The rules for Kiwize allow you to base your size limitations on complex combinations of rules based on who an email is coming from and who it is going to. This allows configuration of Kiwize rules to refuse or allow email based on total size for different usernames, domains, or email addresses email is sent from or received to.
