You can change the email mailbox quota through your cPanel control panel which is where you manage your hosting account. If an email address has suddenly stopped receiving new emails, the quota may have been exceeded. However, this guide will explain how this can be increased.


The first step is to log into your cPanel account. If you are unsure on how to do this, please view the following help article - 'How to log into cPanel'.

This action will then expand a new section below where the email account is shown. You can then adjust the size of the mailbox quota. If you wish, you can set a new value or you can choose 'Unlimited' which will mean the quota should never run out.

Once the adjustment has been made, choose the 'Change Quota' button to complete the process.
