    I edited following file to set default mailbox size in ui:
    /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/mail/form/mail_user.tform.php

    Code:
            'quota' => array (
                'datatype' => 'VARCHAR',
                'formtype' => 'TEXT',
                'validators' => array (  1 => array ( 'type' => 'ISINT',
                        'errmsg'=> 'quota_error_isint'),
                    0 => array ( 'type' => 'REGEX',
                        'regex' => '/^([0-9]{1,})$/',
                        'errmsg'=> 'quota_error_value'),
                ),
                'default' => '1024',   UPDATED THIS FIELD
                'value'  => '',
                'width'  => '30',
                'maxlength' => '255'
            ),
    but web ui still shows as 0. Is there a web cache that I must clear at server?

    That limit can be set in ISPConfig panel. Read the ISPConfig Manual chapter 4.5.1.3 Edit Limit-Templates.

    Again it is not answer of my question. I want to change "DEFAULT VALUE" in Mailbox quota field when creating a new mail account. If I do that ISPConfig Manual chapter 4.5.1.3, it sets all quotas to that value.

    Are you sure of this? I have always thought the template has default values used when a new client is created. Changing the template does not change limits for existing clients.
    Anyway, it can not be all quotas, since there can be many templates and a client can be assigned to one of them or to no template at all.

    You can do this by changing the defaults value in your DB (dbispconfig -> mail_user -> quota) with PHPMyAdmin for example.

    dbispconfig -> mail_user -> quota, Can not believe it did not work either, when creating mail field still shows 0. Something presence it.

    You have to set it under the structure tab, as default field.

    Yes I did so already. One thing I noticed, default dafault value was -1 but in UI it is 0. So even I set it like 1024, in ui it still shows 0.

    The general rule is:

    - Default values for the first tab of a form get set inside the form file (unless it's a value that needs to be computed somehow). If you changed the form file and it remains at 0, then
    - Default values on other tabs can be set in the MySQL database on the structure tab.

    And recording difference 0 and -1: ISPCOnfig uses -1 as value for unlimited and we try to do so consistently in the UI. But some services that connect to ISPConfig have a different meaning for values, this means that ISPConfig has to convert a value between the Ui and the DB. The quota value for email is such a value if I remember correctly. Unlimited in the mail system (dovecot) is 0, and ISPConfig might display this for consistency reasons as -1. But you have to read the whole source of the mail_user form if you want to check this.

    Email creation form is first tab but as I stated at first post, /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/mail/form/mail_user.tform.php file is not changing default value with change of 'default' => '1024', UPDATED THIS FIELD. Is there a cache or temp files I need to clear on server ?

    It might be that the quota value is computed then as it gets calculated based on the client and reseller quotas.

    No it is not. What should I check for that?

    Did you read through the whole ISPConfig mail code and plugins? I've written that code years ago so I don't remember exactly, but it is very likely that this value gets computed.
