    Can email be sent to the vsite user when their general web space is nearly full?

    If I am correct you are asking if an individual cpanel account can send notifications to a specific email address for when it is about to reach it's quota?

    If so the answer is yes...It is in Contact Information & Preferences in cpanel..
    You have the options..

    Send notifications to your contact email address when you are reaching your disk quota.

    Send notifications to your contact email address when you are reaching your bandwidth usage limit.

    Send notifications to your contact email address when one of your email accounts approaches or is over quota.

    Thanks but actually I was asking about the "entire" account quota, not about individual email account quotas.

    For example, if we allow 20GB (total disk space), can the hosted member receive a notice when they get to a total usage of 19GB?

    Hey Jols I don't think you read those correctly the first one says

    Send notifications to your contact email address when you are reaching your disk quota.
    :)

    Okay, goovy. But where is the threshold set? In other words:

    "Send notifications to your contact email address when you are reaching your disk quota."

    At what point, or percent is the determination made regarding "reaching your disk quota"?
