    hi,

    is there any way to edit cPanel format to work like this:

    domain will have X MB or GB disk space and email accounts limited to X numbers and each account can have up to 1 GB of space that wont take part of domain space.

    i was wondering if there is any file i could possible change to do such thing or would like to know if you guys could point me the way for that kinda of thing without having to make a server just for email accounts.

    Go on, have a guess
    I'm not sure I understand your scenario, but you can't easily change the way the mail quota system works without writing your own exim plugin to do so. Which would be no mean feat.

    this would be such a nice feature for cpanel... :(

    would you be able to show me few steps or just write a basic of what should i need to change i would be pleased to take a look and see if i can manage to do anything i have an extra server that i could be playing with it...

    trying to explain it again:

    A) set quota for the domain: 1GB
    B) ftp and mail will be limited to 1GB

    my needs:

    A) set quota for domain "1GB" set quota for email accounts "10 x 1GB"
    B) client now can make 10 e-mail accounts but each mail account cannot be large then "1GB"
    C) ftp has "1GB" limit each e-mail has "1GB" limit

    a thought, not sure how valid...

    You could create a subdomain (as a separate account) for email and have it use it's own space, and do the same for ftp. However, if the ftp info needs to end up interworking with the web domain, that could cause issues that may be more trouble than they're worth.
