The quota limit for an address defines the amount of mail (in Megabytes) that can be stored to its mailbox. Once this limit is exceeded, any incoming mail will be returned to the sender with a message stating that the recipient’s mailbox is full.
When the quota is reached, new incoming messages will be stored on the server for a 48-hour period before being deleted. They will not be delivered to your inbox until you delete old emails.
Since a full quota will prevent you from receiving mail, it is important to keep track of quota usage.
Note: You will not be able to exceed the quota set by your web host. Also, due to mail server constraints, you cannot set a quota greater than 2048 MB. Quotas exceeding this amount must be unlimited.
To change a mail quota:
- Click Change Quota.
- Type the new email quota (in Megabytes) into the appropriate field. For an unlimited account, click unlimited.
- Click Change Quota to store the new value.
- If you do not wish to change the quota, click cancel.
