    Hi there,

    Recently I got a frightening mail from ISPconfig.
    It sead that [email protected] (the mail account that has administrator posiiton in mydomain) is near to over quota:

    The following users are near or already over their quota limit on server www.mydomain.com:
    Username: postmater
    Used Storage Space: 447.31 MB
    Allocated Storage Space: 100.00 MB
    User's Real Name: Post Master
    User's Email Address: [email protected]
    Web Site: www.mydomain.com
    Group Of Web Site: web2
    I have not any mail in it.
    whether ISPConfig store web and user data in postmaster account?
    And why used space is a large more than allocated space?

    The administrator account owns all web data, as the web data is uploaded by this account.

    I guess that the log files might be counted to the used space which resulted in used space > allocated space. The Log files are written by the root user and the chowned to the admin user.
