What's a quota?
A quota restricts the amount of disk space you can use on the server for email and files stored in your home directory.

How big are the quotas
?
Faculty, staff, and alumni: 2.5 GB total.
Students: 2.5 GB for email and 2.5 GB for home directory files.

Will I know when my account goes over quota?
If you approach the email quota (80-90% use), you will be sent a warning message. Once you hit the quota you will no longer receive any email (except warnings about your quota); people who send you email will be sent a message informing them that you did not receive the message.

How do I know how much disk space I'm using?
Log in to webmail to see your quota at the top of the page, just above the page number.
