Problem this snippet solves:

This iRule provides a forward proxy for SMTP messages; it also filters messages by limiting the maximum size of the DATA sent, and also limiting the amount of messages per TCP connection.

The iRule is limited to a single RCPT at the moment... I'm not sure this could have multiple RCPTs as this would need support of multiple server connections, and a way to store the DATA which doesn't sound like a good thing to do. The other limitation is that it does not support pipelining; I think this is something that could be done in the next version, but will complicate the iRule somewhat.

WARNING: This iRule has NOT been tested in earnest.

Code :

# The following parameter enables local logging - 0=off, 1=on

# Set maximum message size in bytes (21504000 is 21Mbyte)
