    When I change the disk-quota-settings for a certain vhost via plesk, the new value gets stored but that's it.
    Even 24h after my changes nothing happenend, I 'm still getting those "Notification of problem Domains"-Emails.

    Any clou?

    Plesk has two types of disk quota:
    - domain disk quota (you can change it on the domain's limits page)
    - FTP user hard quota (you can change it on the virtual host configuration page)

    and plesk sends a notifications about Domains disk quota exceeding. There is no sense to send a notification about Hard quota, because you cannot excceed it :).

    So just try to change Domains limits.

    Domain Disk Quota

    That's what I am talking about: I changed the Domain Disk Quota. Even I did so those Domains show up as "Disk- / Trafficquota exceeded" marked with an orange Exclamation mark.
    As far as I read the Administrator's Manual, Plesk checks every 24h whether a vhost has exceeded its quotas.
    So it found one of my vhosts in violation with its domain-disk-quota an send me an notification-email about this. I simply changed the domain-disk-quota to a much higher amount of MB. I expected Plesk to recalculate the use of quotas after 24h. What can I say: This vhost is still marked as domain-disk-quota exceeded even some days passed by....

    Actually, Plesk calculates disk space every 24 hours, not the fact that domain exceeds quota. This means that if you change Domains disk space limit and/or Domains traffic limit to the values more than real diskspace and traffic usage, then such domain must not be marked with orange Exclamation sign right after changing values. I suggest you to check once more, that diskspace or traffic really not exceeded.

    I'm a WEBppliance switcher and new to Plesk. Can the hard disk quota be exceeded if I set the mailbox quota to unlimited?

    1) Hard quota cannot be exceeded by definition
    2) There are no any links between hardquota for system user and mailbox quota. Hard quota disable your system user exceed disk space of the user's files. But mailbox's files belongs to "popuser" user, not to your FTP user. So these are completelly different quotas.
