    Default orgnizational level quota allocation

    hi,

    is there any way to allot domain level quota in zimbra ?

    Currently we are providing individual mail box size and sending warning to individual mail user about the quota usage. one of client's requirement is organization level mail box and quota should be set for organizational level usage. Once the limit is reached at organizational level warning mail should go to individual ids and also to an administrator for archiving. they are using exchange right now



    Thanks

    Why not create a new CoS in the Admin GUI and then under the Advanced tab set the account quota. You can also modify the "Quota Warning Message Template" so that it would be sent to the Administrator aswell.

    for e.g if number of users in one domain are 80 and we have provided 100 GB quota for their domain through COS then how the individual user can use this quota or how can we allot it ?

    Nope, that would mean you have allocated 100GB per user defined with that CoS. There is no global quota, only individual mailbox quota which can be handled through a CoS.

    Any COS you create will have a quota amount in it.

    If you make that COS the default for a domain, then by inheritance all user accounts will have that quota applied.

    If a global admin turns off the domain admin's ability to change users' quotas, AND, the global admin NEVER changes a user's quota on the user's settings page, then you have an easy, consistent method to enforce quotas domain-wide.

    If some users need a bigger quota, create a new COS by copying the COS you applied to this domain, increase the quota to what you need, and then apply that COS to each user's account who needs that bigger quota.

    In other words, always set and adjust users' quotas by applying a COS either to a domain or to a user account, not by manually editing each user's quota.

    Hope that helps!
