Hi All

when you do quotas for account administration whats a good level for a 
soft limit and also what would you consider good as a hard limit?

furthermore, what would you set for the money attached to each limit?

Scenario #1 user lets it mail build up until admin calls him up to sort it.

Scenario #2 User shares big files with mates and lets it all build up


How do you charge for the above? If you arent strict with people then 
other users are penalised because they havent space themselves. If youre 
too strict people will complain


Im thinking of putting a 4 meg difference between the limits (eg the 
size of a few big files ( attchments are limited to about 1 or 2 megs ) )
