    it's possible setup the mail quota not include in general user account quota?

    i explain with an example:

    user account: 100mb
    therefore 100mb include mail account, www (public_html), ftp and etcc..
    after i setup e-mail account in cpanel type test@test.com and assigned as quota 20mb
    in this mode 20mb is a part of general account 100mb but in this mode i have problem because if for example 95mb are occupied from public_html data i don't receive nothing e-mail or i receive e-mail like 5mb

    at this point i want ask it's possible setup quota e-mail a part
    in this mode
    user account general 100mb
    and 20mb e-mail account fixed?
    total 120 :)

    You could just modify the account and give it 120MB of space. As far as I know, there is no way to seperate, at least not easily.

    You cannot separate them as the account uses the system quota and the mail files are part of the account quota. If you're that close to your quota you have to either clear down files or simply increase the quota as squirrel has said.

    No, you cannot. As I said, user accounts use the Linux quota system. Email quotas are for users inbox files only and are applied through exim from a configuration file in /home/account/etc/domain.com/quota which has no direct relation to the Linux quota system, apart from the fact that the inbox file is owned by the user account that has a quota entry in it. So, it's impossible to separate the two.

    I agree that you should not be able to create a malbox quota that is larger than your overall account quota - that seems like a bug. But you should never be able to do it the other way round for the reasons tha I have already specified, i.e. that Linux disk quotas are based on Linux user accounts (and/or groups) and nothing more - there is no concept of an email quota in the operating system,

    but it can quote any user then that it is of mail is not important. the truth is that the mail user is virtual in Cpanel, not included in etc/passwd.

    This is the problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Then how can some hosting companies provide separate web space than email space, and db?

    for example, Godday ... it will give you like, lets say 1GB hosting, and 10mail boxes, each limits to 100MB ... or take Yahoo! As another example??!

    are they using two different servers or more, one for web and another one for email and so on?!


    I really need someone to clear this thing up!

    Regards,
