Managing Accounts Usage with a COS
A default COS is created when Zimbra is installed. You can modify the default COS and create new ones.
You can manage the following from a COS.

You could, for example, create an Executive COS which is configured to enable all features, have unlimited mailbox quotas and never purges messages and create another General-Employee COS which enables only the mail feature, sets the mailbox quota and purges messages every 60 days. Grouping accounts to a specific COS lets you update or change account features in block. When the COS is changed all accounts assigned to the COS are changed.
If a COS is not explicitly set for a new account, or if the COS assigned to a user no longer exists, the Zimbra default COS is automatically assigned.
You can create a domain COS and have all accounts created on that domain automatically be assigned this COS. You can create different COSs and specify which ones are available for the domain. If a domain does not have a COS defined, and you do not specify a COS, the original default COS is automatically assigned when an account is created.
Some COS settings can be overridden either by global settings or by user settings. For example:
*
Whether outgoing messages are saved to Sent can be changed from the Zimbra Web Client in the user’s preferences.
