Domain Limits

Domain Limit Management allows a Global Administrator to set domain level limits that cannot be exceeded by any Administrator. The only way to exceed a Domain Limit is to change the Domain Limit itself.

Available Domain Limits

The following types of domain limits can be configured on

  • Global Account Limit: The maximum number of accounts that can be created on this domain.

  • Domain Quota: The maximum mailbox quota that any Administrator can grant to a mailbox in the domain.

  • COS Limits: Define which Classes of Service can be used for users in the domain and the maximum number of users per Class of Service.

This feature is currently available from the Command Line Interface only. therefore to modify the values of these domain limits, the following commands can be used.
