Important Information about Email Account Quota in cPanel:

Make certain that you track your quota usage, because you cannot receive email with a full quota.

The quota calculation does not include your mailbox's trash folder.

You cannot exceed the quota that your hosting provider sets.

Due to mail server constraints, you cannot assign quotas greater than 4096000 MB (4096 GB or 4 TB). You must assign the unlimited value for quotas that exceed this amount.

The system calculates mailbox quota use every four hours. For this reason, you may not receive notifications immediately if an email account reaches or exceeds its quota.
