we have enforced strict mail quota rules for everybody (with the possibility to archive old mails and a 'archive attachments). Unfortunatelly some users don't get the mail quota warning message, so every few days we have to use our cluebat and tell them what to do after such messages and especially after their mail gets stuck in mail.box...
For that I would like to customise the mailquota warnings (subject and Message) to put there a bigger "do something now" message and more specific instruction what to do. And what happens when you don't do anything...

As you mention "subject and message" I assume you use quota warnings sent by the router task. In this case, you can customize the message (not the subject) by editing the form in the maildatabase template.

Costumizing system databases = No so nice :-( But better than nothing. AnywaY: It would be nice if this could be pushed via a policy...

At one org I tweaked the mail template to message box the users to death when quota had been exceeded.

Any developer can do this right now with minimal tweaks to a mail template. Then you just let overnight refresh push the template out and viola users cant miss the quota warnings if they come up in pop-up boxes every time they try to send an email.

So admins come down off the mountain and buddy up with your developers.
