Quote from: PlusComUK I'd also like to see a size per email column in the account summary.

You control this by the settings in the email client you are using.

Edit: and with RoundCube you can see the total usage for each folder.

Quote from: PlusComUK What is the max size of an email and what is the current maximum size of the storage?

The maximum size of an email is 100MB minus overheads:

bpullen>telnet relay.plus.net 25

220 avasout04 smtp relay.plus.net

ehlo avasout04

250-avasout04 hello [84.93.217.27], pleased to meet you

250-HELP

250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN

250-SIZE 104857600 <--- This is the maximum allowed file size

250-PIPELINING

250-8BITMIME

250 OK

We ask that you keep the contents of your mailspace below 1GB.

Quote from: PlusComUK Why is there not a notification or graph of amount of storage used / available, as with other providers ?

Because customers' mailboxes do not have a hard quota configured on the server.

Quote from: PlusComUK Which my browser, Camino doesn't like !!

Why doesn't it like it? I've just send an email from Roundcube using Camino?

The maximum size of an email is 100MB minus overheads:

Worth commenting that that is the limit

**after encoding**. In practice it means a maximum attachment size of around 85MB.

How can I keep track of how much data is in my "mailspace" so that I don't go over 1GB? Given that I have lots of folders on the server and use IMAP, the only way I can think of is to add up the sizes of every folder there. Isn't there an easier way?

The new Webmail platform will tell you folder size but only on a per folder basis. We provide plenty of warning before taking any measures against customers whose mailspace exceeds the limits in the AUP.
