Last updated on DECEMBER 28, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 5.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
A few users who receive more mail more frequently that normal (thousands of messages per hour rather than a few per day) consume more disk space on one message store partition which is nearly out of space.
It would be better if we could spread those users out over other partitions which have more free space.
How do we identify which users are the highest volume?
How can we focus on only the users who are currently on the problem partition?
Normally you would identify users who might need to be moved to other partitions by looking at imquotacheck and observe the largest accounts.

This article is intended for the case where high-volume users are receiving a large amount of mail and deleting it relatively quickly.
Those accounts may appear to be relatively small/normal in imquotacheck and mboxutil -l, but may have a larger number of expunged messages waiting to be cleaned up.
To identify that situation, you will need to look at the volume of mail being recevied, as described in this article.
