We are pleased to announce that the default mailbox size for our hosting plans with email has been increased, significantly. The previous default size of 1GB email storage per mailbox is now 25GB per mailbox!
There is nothing that you will need to do or request for this change to happen. THIS CHANGE HAS BEEN DEPLOYED AUTOMATICALLY to all existing hosting accounts with email. Any new domains you add will also have this new quota associated with their mailboxes going forward.
Thanks to our upstream provider Rackspace for making this increase possible.
