|GroupWise Space Tips
Network Operations Center -- 3/21/2006
Storage space is a limited resource, and email storage is no exception. We limit administrative users (faculty/staff) to 100MB in GroupWise, but freely expand that allocation upon request until 300MB is reached. At that point we need to make sure you are taking steps to "limit the damage" before we expand your allocation further.
There are several strategies that you can use to avoid overrunning your email storage quota:
By far the most frequent cause of over-quota problems is attachments. While most email is 10K or smaller, attachments can be up to 1000 times larger. When you receive an attached file, such as a set of pictures, a PowerPoint presentation, or the results of a database query, don't leave it in your mailbox to count against your quota:
Archiving your email means removing it from the email server to local storage. It no longer counts against your quota, it remains one or two clicks away, and you can always put it back on the server if you need to. Please follow the instructions here.
