This option allows or forbids users to set Direct Mode for their POP3 accounts and IMAP folders.

Direct mode is default

This option makes all new POP3 accounts and all IMAP folders be synchronized in Direct Mode by default. In Direct Mode, AfterLogic WebMail Lite works directly with the mailbox on mail server (mails are always taken directly from mail server), database is used only to store user accounts and address books (mails are not stored in database).

Attachment size limit

Specifies maximum allowed size (in bytes) of the file to be attached to the message during composing. If the attachment file size exceeds specified limit, it will be rejected (Note that your web server may also imply certain restirictions on maximum size of the data being uploaded. See FAQ for details).

Enable attachment size limit

Specifies whatever to limit atachment size or not. Set it to the value of maximum allowed attachment size (in bytes).

Mailbox size limit

Specifies maximum allowed size (in bytes) of mailbox. Mailbox can't contain messages with summary size greater than this value.

Enable mailbox size limit

Specifies whatever to limit mailbox size or not. Set it to the value of user's maximum mailbox size (in bytes).

Take quota value from IMAP server

This setting makes WebMail Lite to request mailbox size from IMAP server instead of using "Mailbox size limit" parameter. This works for IMAP accounts only. Moreover, this setting doesn't affect accounts which already exist in WebMail Lite database, it works as a default setting for new accounts.

Quota is optional IMAP extension and not all IMAP servers support it. If you turn this setting on, but the IMAP server doesn't support quotas, "Take quota value from IMAP server" will be disabled in user account settings and "Mailbox size limit" parameter of WebMail will be used.
