I noticed on one of my WH servers that I can't create mailboxes larger than 20 MB anymore. Previously I could set a quota or leave 0, which meant unlimited (within total VDS disk quota).

Is there a way to create large mailboxes again? I sold 50 MB accounts to many customers, so I'm quite concerned about that.

WH disabled the unlimitd quota a while back to help curb those who never set the limit and then maxing out their account without knowing it.

You can't change it via the WH interfaces but you can manually in your config files. There is a thread on it somewhere I'll see if I can hunt it down for you.

I found the threads. First read the WH response to the problem:
