    Storage space
    — Enter a custom disk storage size to limit the account’s email quota size, or
    — Select Unlimited if you do not want to limit the account’s email quota size.


    Automatically Create Folders for Plus Addressing
    Automatically Create Folders — When you receive an email that uses plus addressing, the system will create a new folder. The server moves a message that uses plus addressing to a designated folder if the folder exists. For example, the system would place a message to user+plusaddress@example.com in the plus address folder.
    Do Not Automatically Create Folders. — When you receive an email that uses plus addressing, the system will not create a new folder. Instead, it delivers the message to the INBOX folder. 


    Send welcome email with instructions to set up a mail client
    Select the Send welcome email with instructions to set up a mail client checkbox to send the user mail client set up instructions. The user can access this message via Webmail. This message contains the mail client details and the.mobileconfig file for Apple® devices.

    Stay on this page after I click Create
