How to Adjust Email Quota in cPanel

When creating email accounts in cPanel, users have the ability to set the email quota for each email account. It can also be adjusted manually if a user is expecting an influx of incoming email or if a user is about to exceed the allotted quota.

Shared hosting plans are allowed unlimited disk space, bandwidth and email quota; Reseller, VPS and Dedicated Server plans, however, must be mindful not to exceed their allotted resources.

For more information on what to expect when the email quota for an account is about to be exceeded, please refer to the following article:
