Quota issues, I think.

    I just set up ISPConfig 3. I was trying to create a user account which seemed to have went okay, then I noticed that I have no rights as the user.
    Example, trying to create an email account for a user. I get this error.


    1. The max. number of mailboxes for your account is reached.

    Anyone have an idea or solution? Would be greatly appreciated.
    Note* This is a default account for myself so I granted myself unlimited abilites for the user account. No max email clients, db's, yada yada yada.

    Are you sure that you set the amount to -1 and not to 0?

    Originally I had it put to 0 then upon doing some more reading I found that -1 is unlimited. All is set to -1 in the users account.

    Another error:

    I created a second account which has the same rights that mine does. The second account is unable to SSH to the server ;D .. but my account can.

    Kinda on topic, when I set -1 as the mailbox size limit I ended up with a 1mb quota and alerts in thunderbird. I set the mail size to a large # of mb and all was well, but -1 didn't seem to mean unlimited for that setting.

    You seem to mix up ispconfig 2 and ispconfig 3. Email users in ISPConfig 3 can never login by SSH.
