E-mail Quotas: Mail left on the server may not exceed the following quotas:
Students: 250 MB
Faculty and Staff: 1 GB
Once your quota has been exceeded mail sent to your account will be returned to the sender with a message that the recipient's mail box is over quota. You can check your quota by logging into Zimbra WebMail. The quota status bar is in the upper right hand corner.
Faculty and Staff have the option to increase their email quota. Fill out the increase mail quota form and submit it so Computer Services in Moody Hall 210 or campus mailbox 1025.
E-mail Retention: St. Edward's email will no longer be removed from the system after 365 days. This means that you may retain your email on Zimbra web mail for as long as you wish provided you stay under your email quota.
How does the quota work?
All e-mail sent to your St. Edward's account automatically goes to the server mail.stedwards.edu. You then use an e-mail application such as Outlook, Zimbra Webmail or Mac Mail to check your email. If you use Zimbra or Outlook with the Zimbra Connector or Mac Mail setup as IMAP you are working directly off of the mail.stedwards.edu server and any messages you delete and remove from the Trash are also removed from the server.
Checking Your Quota
- Make sure you are in the Mail section of outlook on the bottom right.
- Click on the Zimbra Tab on the far right tab.
Locate and click on Mailbox Quota in the Server group.
