DISA to Limit Mailbox Size for Pentagon’s Enterprise Email; John Howell Comments

Defense Information Systems Agency DISAThe Defense Information Systems Agency will start to limit uniformed personnel’s mailbox sizes for Defense Department enterprise email on Oct. 1, the Army said Monday.

DISA will cap email storage to 512 megabytes for basic class users and 4 gigabytes for business users in compliance with the DEE service level agreement.

Users in the business category whose mailboxes go beyond 3.7 gigabytes and basic users whose storage size exceeds 410 megabytes will receive automated warnings, according to the report.

“The warning emails serve as a heads-up for users, to remind them to clear out extra emails before their mailbox size starts to impact their ability to use the email system,” said John Howell, program executive officer for enterprise information systems and product director for enterprise email at the U.S. Army.

Users who continue to exceed the respective storage size limits will receive warnings about restrictions on their capacity to send and receive emails.
