Need to Implement Quotas on Existing System (Doc ID 2464694.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Consider a Mail Service environment that has no Message store quota defined but where mails are deleted after 15 days and an application which sends mail to a mailbox which make it grow to over 2 Terabytes (TB) and nearly fill up all storage on one of the mail stores.

How can such catastrophic growth of a mailbox be prevented ? Is it by adding quota limitation or are there any other recommendations ?

Consider the largest mailboxes to be about 3.2GB size. So one option is to set mail quota to 20GB and still have plenty of space.
