The quota limit for an address defines the amount of mail (in Megabytes) that can be stored to its mailbox. Once this limit is exceeded, any incoming mail will be returned to the sender with a message stating that the recipient’s mailbox is full.

When the quota is reached, new incoming messages will be stored on the server for a 48-hour period before being deleted. They will not be delivered to your inbox until you delete old emails.

Since a full quota will prevent you from receiving mail, it is important to keep track of quota usage.

note Note: You will not be able to exceed the quota set by your web host. Also, due to mail server constraints, you cannot set a quota greater than 2048 MB. Quotas exceeding this amount must be unlimited.

To change a mail quota:

   1. Click Change Quota.
   2. Type the new email quota (in Megabytes) into the appropriate field. For an unlimited account, click unlimited.
   3. Click Change Quota to store the new value.
          * If you do not wish to change the quota, click cancel.

    If you simply wish to forward all email for an address to another account, do not create an email account for that address, just a forwarder. For example, if you wish to have all mail sent to abc@domain1.com to be delivered to xyz@domain2.com, but you do not wish to have any emails saved in abc@domain1.com='s account, add a forwarder from =abc@domain1.com to xyz@domain2.com and do not create the abc@domain1.com email account. Read More ...
    Your default email address is listed under the Default Email Account heading. This is a special email account set up when your control panel account is created by your web host. The account's username and password are the same as your control panel account name and password.

    Depending upon your web host's setup, this address may serve as a "catch-all" for all mail sent to invalid usernames in your domain. As such, it may receive a large amount of spam.

    You can check and delete the mail received by this account. To do this via webmail, click Access Webmail.

    The default address cannot be deleted or renamed, and it has no quota. It cannot be used for sending email. For this reason, we recommend creating an email account for daily use.

    Yes. Create a forwarder from the account receiving the mail to the account that should also get the mail. For example, if people are emailing abc@domain1.com but you also want xyz@domain2.com to receive that mail, set up a forwarder from abc@domain1.com to xyz@domain2.com, and both accounts will receive the email. Tip: You can add as many forwarders as you want to get copies of the email sent to more accounts. Read More ...
    Check to make sure you have new mail by logging into https://example.com:2096 or http://example.com/webmail Once logged in, choose a webmail program to view your inbox. If the mail appears in the webmail interface above but not on your computer's mail application (outlook, outlook express, mail, etc), you'll need to verify that the settings you are using to check your email are correct. The settings should look something like: mail.example.com user@example.com Make sure to try enabling 'My Server requires Authentication' in Outlook as many servers require this option. If you still cannot receive mail, check with your web host to verify your settings. Read More ...
    Yes, you may access your email from any computer with a web browser and an Internet connection. Typically you can access the webmail using https://example.com:2096, replacing example.com with your website's actual domain name. The normal login is your email address and password, so user@example.com and "yourpassword". Read More ...
    You can use the following regular expression: from .+\@domain\.com If the domain you wish to allow is mydomain.com, it would look like: from .+\@mydomain\.com Read More ...
    The email address that receives mail for the root user is defined in /root/.forward

    The format of the file is a single email address on a line, for example, admin@domain.com. Read More ...
    To do this, you will need to create an email forwarder in control panel. If you wish for the messages to only be sent to the file and not stored in a mailbox, do not create an email address, just create a forwarder with the name of the address.

    When creating the forwarder, choose the pipe to a program option. Then put in the path of the file/program you wish to send the mail to. Read More ...
    If you are using POP3 protocol to download email, it will not tell the server that your mail has been read. We suggest switching to IMAP for email if your host uses IMAP. Read More ...
    This means that there was a problem delivering the mail meesage you sent. Either an address you tried to send it to was misspelled, or it no longer exists. Check the rest of the message to see what email address the problem was related to. Read More ...
    To redirect/forward email messages to multiple addresses, you will need to add email forwarders for each address. For example, if you wished for support@domain.com to redirect to both john@domain.com and marsha@domain.com, you will need to add the following forwarders:
    • support@domain.com --> john@domain.com
    • support@domain.com --> marsha@domain.com
    Please note that you do not actually have to create an email account for support@domain.com, unless you want to also be able to check that account's mail messages by logging in as support@domain.com. Read More ...
    Sure. Simply to go to https://example.com/webmail or https://example.com:2096 (replacing example.com with your domain name) to login directly with the email account and password. Read More ...

    • Make sure root pass is in /root/.my.cnf.
    This is usually the first root pass the box was given once control panel is installed. If it still does not work, you will need to reset the mysqld root pass. To do so:
  • Stop the mysqld.
    • Usually /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql stop
  • Stop chkservd to keep it from interfering with mysqld
    • /etc/rc.d/init.d/chkservd stop
  • Start mysqld without the grant tables
    • mysqld --skip-grant-tables -u mysql &
  • Change the pass.
    • mysql -u root mysql UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD('new_password') WHERE user='root'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
  • Now you just killall -9 mysqld and start it up normally with it's safe_mysqld script. Read More ...
    Most likely, you will need to restart mysqld with the -O max_allowed_packet=# option. Read More ...
    Make sure the password is in /var/lib/pgsql/.pgpass

    The format is as follows:

    *:*:*:postgres:PASSWORD Modify /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf It should contain the following... local all all md5 host all all 127.0.0.1 255.255.255.255 md5 Change 'md5' to 'trust' to disable authentication then restart postgres. `/etc/init.d/postgresql restart` Now you should be able to connect to postgresql as user 'postgres' without a password to modify the password. `psql -u template1` Run the following sql command. "alter user postgres with password 'NEW PASSWORD HERE';" Finally change /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf back to its original format and restart postgresql one more time. Now you should be able to authenticate using user postgres and the password you specified. Read More ...
    You will need to add the IP address from which you wish to connect to the databse in the Remote MySQL section of the control panel interface. Read More ...
    Using a remote MySQL setup, will be functionally the same a using a local setup. Since you are configuring all your customer connections to occur over tcp, the only difference will be their connection string. On the backend, the only applications that are connecting with domain sockets are horde, squirrel mail, and phpMyAdmin. All these connections are built dynamically from system variables determined by your configuration. All service status information should be displayed normally. In short, running a remote MySQL host will have little to no impact. Read More ...
    The API version you see in phpinfo is the builtin mysql api included in php. If the buildapache application used the libraries and headers of mysql installed on the server itself, apache would not be able to work if the mysql version was hanged. Since mysql rpms are updated in the control panel whenever redhat releases updates, this could automatically break thousands of servers in a matter of a few hours, hence apache and php will always be built with the -builtin option. I see ERROR at line 2: Unknown command '\_'. when I list mysql databases. You are running mysql version 4.0.12 which has a bug that causes this error. Upgrading to a later version should resolve the problem.

    Run the following:
  • /scripts/updatenow
  • The second step depends on what operating system your server is running.
    • In Linux: /scripts/sysup
    • In FreeBSD: /scripts/fixmysqlbsd
  • Read More ...
    Port 3306 can be used for remote MySQL connections. You will need to configure access in the Remote MySQL section of your cPanel interface. Read More ...
    You should check that mysqld is running first of all. If it is, check to see that it's looking for the correct UNIX socket.
    On FreeBSD it would look something like this: # netstat -f unix |grep mysql x65b33c0 stream 0 0 e5477840 0 0 0 /tmp/mysql.sock
    On Linux is would look something like:

    # netstat -ax |grep mysql unix 2 [ ACC ] STREAM LISTENING 362783486 /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock If you have one and an application is looking for the other, make a symbolic link (ln -s) from the one you see to the one it wants. Read More ...
    You can set the maximum number of total databases that user can create with packages, as well as when creating accounts without packages.

    If you set a limit for databases, this will allow that limit for each type. So right now, you can offer:
    • X MySQL, or
    • X PostgreSQL, or
    • X MySQL and X PostgreSQL.
    In the future, you will be able to offer X PostgreSQL and Y MySQL. Read More ...
