Mail box quotas

Mail box quotas

The Exchange service has a finite storage capacity and in order to maintain availability and performance a limit is applied to all users mailboxes. The standard quotas are for:

  • Undergraduates 300Mb
  • Postgraduates 500Mb

Exceeded quotas

You will receive a warning email telling you that you are approaching your quota at 280Mb for Undergraduates and 480Mb for Post Graduates.
When a mailbox exceeds 300Mb for Undergraduates or 500Mb for Postgraduates you will be prohibited from sending email from your account until you have cleared out your mailbox to below the quota.
Should a mailbox exceed 310Mb for Undergraduates or 510Mb for Postgraduates, you will be prohibited from receiving email until you have cleared out your mailbox to below the quota.
