Please note that disk space used by your mailbox counts towards your overall package disk limit. We have a separate article on how to manage your package limits.

If a user is over quote, you can either have them remove email from their mailbox in their email client or webmail; or you can use the Email Disk Usage tool to prune older emails from the server.

  1. Within the cPanel Email section, click Email Accounts.
  2. Click Manage next to the email address you'd like to change
  3. Change the Storage Space quota or set to unlimited as required. Please note that disk space used by your mailbox counts towards your overall package disk limit.
