mailbox quote problems

Post by samson » Thu Feb 03, 2011 8:25 am

I have a problem with the mailbox quote.

Situation ...

Mailbox quota has been set to 50MB
Settings are that all folders count towards quota total
when quota is reached, no mail is delivered to mailbox, only mailbox quota email .....

Now, here is the problem, I login to this mailbox through webmail ....
I construct new message and send the new message to somebody ...
The message is stored in the send items folder ....
The quota is exceeded once more ....

I had a customer using 800MB of his 50MB quote, system was saying used : 1700%

When quota is exceeded, is it normal that users can still send items and keep exceeding their quota ?

I am not sure if this is also the case with imap

any ideas ? anyone ?

Hi, today I see an other quota problem (ME 5.0.6)
User has activated POP3 Retrievel.
At MMC quote ist set to 2,5 GB.
At the Webmail:
Disk Space Used 2,4 GB
Disk Space Available 2,4 GB
Usage Percentage 96,5%
At the Filesystem the mailbox uses 9,15 GB!
User can use the mailbox without problems.

Any ideas?
