    Default Mail Quota


    This the first time I use Zimbra.
    I need to ask:
    1) What is the maximum limit for the Mail Quota?
    2) How I can create mail quota for each account?

    So there's no theoretical limit (well file system max) just set 0 = unlimited.
    The max value for zimbraMailQuota (if you wanted to 'cap'/the most that attribute can contain) is 8 Exabytes (= 8,192 Petabytes = 8,388,608 Terabytes = 8,589,934,592 Gigabytes)

    Admin Console > COS or Account > Advanced
    zmprov mc COSname zimbraMailQuota 0
    zmprov ma zimbraMailQuota 0

    <attr id="16" name="zimbraMailQuota" type="long" cardinality="single" optionalIn="account,cos" flags="accountInfo,accountInherited,domainAdminMod ifiable">
    <desc>mail quota in bytes</desc>
    3.0.0 M2+: Bug 3617 - Quota in ldap won't take values > 2G
    Java int: −2,147,483,648 to +2,147,483,647
    Java long: 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to +9,223,372,036,854,775,807

    From the admin console the most you can enter in the field is 8,796,093,022,207 Megabytes which = 9,223,372,036,853,727,000 Bytes (or do unlimited quota by typing 0).

    Integer (computer science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Edited the above post to explain the 0 for unlimited vs the max you could 'cap'/fit into the zimbraMailQuota attribute a little better.
