    I was curious - does a user get the 80% data transfer warning email at the same intervals as the administrator (~ every 8 hours)? Some of my users are 80% through their bandwidth with a few days left in the month (but don't go over) and I feel that it must annoy them if they indeed get these warnings every 8 hours.

    I also wanted to ask, is there a way to:
    - Change the % data transfer that they are warned at?
    - Change the body of the warning message?
    - Change the frequency of the emails?

    And how about a feature in WHM that would allow us to give a temporary bandwidth "bump" to any single account without having to fudge with packages, etc.

    I'd like to be able to tell customer Y - hey, you're about to go over. I'll sell you another GB for 2$, that should get you over the end of the month.

    Or even just bump my best clients for free...

    But have it all reset at the end of the month.

    Good idea. I don't think that would be too hard to add to my scripts.

    I don't have root, so I doubt that I could add such a script...
    It would be great to have that as a function of the actual product - after all, it costs a bloody fortune to licence...

    You can enter a feature request here or ask your host if they will add custom scripts. They may not because customizations would have to be redone whenever a cpanel updated causes changes to the WHM skin.
