Hi all,
I struggle with this, how is it possible that I can't give more then 2048MB as a qouta for the mailbox,
but on the other hand I can give 'unlimited' space.

Is this 'unlimited' still restriced to the 2048MB?

Thanks for any help.

Hello :)

There is a technical limitation of Exim where soft quotas that exceed 2048 MB are prohibited. The use of "unlimited" means there is no quota, so mailbox usage is only restricted by the overall cPanel account quota.

Thank you.
