Set global mailbox limits

You can specify the maximum number of mailboxes that can be created for each domain. When you set the mailbox limit at the company level, this value applies to all new domains within that company; however, you can change the limit for particular domains.

Once set, the limit cannot be exceeded, even by restoring an account that would result in more mailboxes than allowed; in that case, you would get an error message and the restore would not proceed. You would have to increase the limit and then retry the restore.
