Customizing Your Domain Email Account Mailbox Storage Quota

Doteasy gives your maximum flexibility and control when it comes to your domain email accounts. Customization options include mailbox storage quota, email filters and rules, auto-responders, email forwarding and more.

In this article, we will show you how to customize the mailbox storage quota of your domain email account.

Combined domain inbox storage quota

Each web hosting account comes with a combined domain mailbox storage quota. This is the total storage quota for all the email accounts under one domain name. The number of email accounts you can create under your domain name depends on the hosting plan you are on.

For example, the Starter Plan comes with a combined domain mailbox storage quota of 1GB and you are allowed to create up to 10 domain email accounts. 

How you divide up the combined storage quota is up to you – Doteasy gives you total control over how the domain mailbox storage is allocated between your email inboxes. For example, you can create just one domain email account and allocate the combined storage quota to that one account. Or, you can create as many email accounts as you need (or as allowed by your hosting plan) and allocate the quota anyway you like.
