Email Quota

There are two default email quota levels for Western email addresses.  Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students receive a 250Mb allocation.  Undergraduate Students receive a 50Mb allocation.

Requests for Increased Email Quota Levels

Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students

Due to a recent upgrade in the central disk environment for Western ITS, and as part of an investigation into a potential change in the Western faculty/staff email system, ITS has elected to waive email disk charges for Faculty, Staff and Graduate student email accounts for the period of May 1, 2013 to April 30, 2014.

Quota levels for users are intended to accommodate current usage and provide for a reasonable expectation of growth.   If you should experience a situation where email disk space levels are not adequate or you have questions about email quota increases, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 519 661-3800 to determine next steps.

Default quota levels, disk usage and costs will be revisited for the 14/15 fiscal year and charges for additional quota may be reinstated at that time.

Undergraduate Students

Default quotas for undergraduate email addresses will not change (50Mb). Additional quota can be purchased for $5/GB. This additional quota will remain available until the student account is discontinued.  Please contact the ITS Helpdesk for information on how to purchase additional email quota.
