At this time, it appears this default is theme-dependent. That's why X (on which the deprecated Bluelagoon theme is based) has 10 MB vs. X3's 250 MB default.The old cPanel (bluelagoon) defaulted the email account quota to 10MB, which was too small.
The new cPanel (3x) defaults a new email account quota to 250MB, which is too large.
How, can I change the default that comes up for this in v11 (3x)?
I get no such directory at ---> /usr/local/cpanel/frontend/x3/...according to the entry, you can modify the theme in /usr/local/cpanel/frontend/x3/ to customize this in the meantime.
You are correct, sorry I didn't catch that. Updated the bugzilla entry accordingly so others know in the future.I get no such directory at ---> /usr/local/cpanel/frontend/x3/
Okay, looks like it is here ---> /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x3 and there are 104 files and directories in this particular location. Any idea as to which one I could change for this? I do grep 250 * and nothing comes up.
You shouldn't need to do that if you have copied the theme into a different directory and assigned users to use that theme instead.David,
Do you plan to add a default email account quota setting in WHM?
Editing this manually every few days/weeks is getting old.
I'd advise against chattr +i as that is generally ineffective at preventing file updates by /scripts/upcp.Can you point us to the step-by-step on this?
We use the x3 theme, and the only way around this that I could determine (in order to reset the giant 250MB email box default), was to make an initial edit and then to chattr +i both the addpop.html and popsinclude.html files.
But why not just include an option to reset the email box default using the Tweak Settings link in WHM? I can't image this would be any kind of a technical challenge for you guys?
Are you aware that some heavily used email clients, like Outlook, tend to choke and die with hundreds of MBs of email to retrieve?

This is exactly what I'm concerned with when it comes to using an entire custom theme..... Note, enhancements to x3 will not automatically propagate to your custom theme.
Yes, default mailbox quota in WHM Tweak Settings is much needed.This is exactly what I'm concerned with when it comes to using an entire custom theme.
Thanks for the step-by-step, very much appreciated. But in you're opinion what are the odds of cPanel.net including this very logical (and much needed) option sometime in the near future?
Yeah but this is a 4 year old bugzilla. So obviously cPanel.net is not interested in correcting this one.Don't forget to vote for the bug (see above) if you want this done.

Also, with this most recent cPanel upgrade, it apparently does no good to edit the files we were editing before, and then locking them off from any further system updates, which was apparently our only recourse here (unless we manually edit these files on all servers virtually every single day).
Come on guys! This one is getting downright ridiculous!
We need a way to set up the default for the email account size in cPanel. When the default is 250MB this INVITES accounts that get absolutely log-jammed over time with huge amounts of email data.
Why does cpanel.net continue to avoid this ever-so-important issue?
