Overview

This feature allows you to assign a package to a new account. A package defines the limitations of the account. For example, a package determines how much disk space the new account can use or how much data the new account can transfer.

Important:

You must choose a package option before you attempt to save the new account. 

Assign an existing package

You can use the Choose a Package menu to assign an existing package. If you are unsure of the limitations that will be assigned by a package, you can hold your cursor over the button to view the package’s configuration.

Select package options manually

If you wish to edit package options manually, select the Select Options Manually box.

When you select this box:

  • The Save manual settings as a Package. box will appear.
  • The Manual Resource Options section will appear. This section provides settings that define the limitations of an account.
  • Additional options will appear in the Settings section.
  • If a package that uses package extensions is selected in the Choose a Package menu, a Package Extensions section will appear.

If you wish to save your manually selected options as a new package:

  1. Click the Save manual settings as a Package. box. The Package Name text box and Feature List menu will appear.
  2. Enter a name for the new package in the Package Name text box.

Maximum percentage of failed or deferred messages a domain may send per hourDefines the maximum percentage of failed or deferred messages that a domain can send before your server temporarily blocks outgoing mail from that domain.
