Originally I was going to title this "Public Folder Quota", but that's already been done a couple of time indicating that quotas on Public Folders aren't possible as of v8.
Here's the question then: How are hosting companies providing KC as a service managing this?
The only work-around I can currently see is to never give write privileges to the domain users (mailbox holders) for Public Folders. But Public Folders are, in my opinion, a major feature of KC. It's the easiest way I can see to publish email / PIM information to users because the public folders are available on all KC devices automatically (vs. folder sharing where it must be manually added to every client).
If one cannot provide quotas on Public Folders though, then it is possible for users to dump data into a Public Folder to reduce the size of their mailbox, while not really reducing the size on disk at the server end. I found a hosting guide document from Kerio that discusses providing hosted KC mailboxes, but they don't mention anything about the need to control the size of the public folders. A domain quota would fix this, but I don't see an option for that anywhere either.
My apologies for not linking to references but the forum won't let me add a URL (even plaintext) due to not meeting the post threshold.
