    Will be nice to add a feature at Reseller Center where you can specify the maximum size in MB a reseller can assign to a mailbox.

    Cause I´ve seen resellers creating 1000mb mailboxes.

    So If you can set a global limit to all resellers for example not to create mailboxes more than 50MB or the value you want is a great feature.

    Better than having the server overwhelmed.

    Thanks.

    250mb should get the job done, I'd be hesitant to go over that amount though. If they're using IMAP and storing messages on the server and never deleting them, they can quickly add up.

    well yes, a feature like this is highly required and is very useful for server administration.

    Whats the difference between 1000MB of mail, or 1000MB of MP3's or 1000MB of php files?

    Great, I give it a vote. How many votes does a bugzilla request needs to be considered??

    Thanks

    Well, it´s better for server performance and administration. Having mail quotas limited at a certain point helps.

    Months ago I suggested the limitation for scan message size for spamassassin and CpanelNick liked the idea. Then cpanel team inserted the code and is working excelent and reduced server load a lot!

    Things to reduce load or to prevent server overusage are handy.
