Disk Space Quota and Limits - Confused

    I am marginally confused. :confused: When setting up a domain for hosting under 7.5.4, you can set the following disk space quota allowances:

    Under limits you can set Disk Space
    Under hosting setup you can set Hard Disk Quota
    Under Limits you can also set the number of mail boxes allowed and the maximum mail quota.

    My question is, how do these apply to each other?

    Basically I want to set up a domain with the following settings:
    400Mb space for web pages
    15 mailboxes with a maximum size of 100mb each
    That is a total of 1900Mb

    Which numbers go where? or does it not work like that?

    Thanks in advance!

    400MB hard limit
    100MB mail quota
    1900MB diskspace

    The diskspace isn't enforced, but Plesk can email you to say a user exceeded it, and can alert an external billing system. Hard limit and mail quota are hard limits which cannot be exceeded.

    Thanks cranky. So let me just clarify.

    I set the hard disk limit under the limits menu to 400Mb for the web hosting side
    I set the mail box quota size to 100Mb (this applies that setting to each mailbox)
    Under hosting setup I allocate the maximum disk space required for both hosting and mail (I assume this covers databases, logs etc?)

    Thanks! :)
