    Hello,

    Is there any possibility to have mail notifications about mail quota and when mail account reach 90% will send notification to this account where's 90% quota reached not only to "contact email" accounts?

    Hello,

    A quick solution would be to setup a email forwarder to another email account.

    Note, email forwarders for that same email address will still deposit mail into an email account that has that email address in addition to forwarding.

    This functionality is not natively supported at this time.

    However, it is feasible to build a script that uses the XML API and API1/API2 that compares usage to quota for each email account and then sends a message to the email account owner if they have exceeded a certain threshold. If you are interested in building your own script that uses our APIs to do this, let me know and I can assist you with the API calls.
