Hi,

I currently have cPanel sending out email quota notifications to the email address' that are 85% full but is there anyway I can get the emails as well so I know when a client is near their quota.

Thanks

Matt

Hi Matt,

We don't provide an option to send the individual mailbox usage warnings to the reseller or administrator at this time. I encourage you to open a feature request if this is something you'd like to see added to the product:

Submit A Feature Request

In the meantime, you could develop a script that runs a command like the following and sends you the output on a daily basis:

Code:
grep '\/quotacheck' /var/cpanel/updatelogs/update* | grep MailBox | grep warn
It will show you any mailbox usage warnings sent when the quotacheck script runs as part of the nightly cPanel update.

Thank you.

Hi Micheal,

Thanks for your reply.

I'll definitely put in a feature request for this as it would be very handy for myself and hopefully others.

I have spoken to my server engineer and he said that the command you posted above isn't for mailbox quotas, it's a Linux tool for disk quotas - would he be correct in saying this?

Thanks

Regards

Matt

Hi Matt,

That's not correct. It's a command to search the cPanel update logs for entries matching "quotacheck", "Mailbox", and "Warn". The output of the command will show you which email addresses were notified of mailbox usage warnings during the cPanel updates.

Thank you.
