Mail system status and usage

You can get a quick overview on this page about the mail system's current status.

Mail system status

With this setting, you can switch the mail server for your domain on and off. Deactivation may be useful if you manage the mail system using an external server. If you deactivate the mail server for your domain, the MX record in the zone file will point to your external mail server.

Note: You can completely deactivate local mail inboxes/reception, but ONLY if the MX record points to an external mail server. If it does not point to an external server, there is a good chance that you will lose emails.


This shows the current number of mailboxes and redirects, as well as the disk space currently required by all accounts.
