    Disk Usage doesn't match "Unlimited"

    The PowWeb site says disk space is unlimited.
    My Control Panel main page says my maximum disk usage is 1,500GB.
    My Disk Usage page says: "Available Disk Space: 40000 MB ( 40GB )"
    The "Web Site and Logs" section says: "1500000 MB Total."
    That page also says "Total Allocated Quota: 1498850 MB (Over Quota)."

    Which one is correct? Not that I plan to use 1.5TB, but why don't these numbers agree? I'd feel a little better with a nice round number like 100GB.

    Also, I just noticed that Mail Central eliminated the other two ways of managing POP3 mailboxes and SMTP addresses. They all had their strengths and weaknesses, but now we're left with just one. To me, the biggest weakness (besides being very cumbersome to manage any quantity of domains and addresses) is that I can no longer see at a glance all of the mailboxes and how much space each is using.

    Is there any chance of getting that capability back?

    Contact support. As a long time forum member, you know that these types of questions are generally unanswerable here.

    There is a round about way of checking what each mailbox is using:

    http://members.powweb.com/webControl/DiskQuota.bml

    or go to Disk Usage, then click on: Set mailbox allocations individually

    Doc C, as a long-time forum member, I know there's often someone who's already run into this situation. Since my hosting wasn't broken, I didn't want to run to Support without checking the forum community first.

    Thanks, KitBear. That's pretty roundabout, as you say, but it works. (BTW, the Disk Quota page is the same as the Disk Usage page.)

    It takes a day for your disk allocations to refresh on your end. I have experienced this a few times for one mail account.
