I think it's awesome that Dreamhost might actually be making headway with email improvement! If Dreamhost need to limit the size of mailboxes to achieve this goal then fine.
This roll-out has been done in typical Dreamhost style. Clouded with bots that deliver unclear messages, and lack of communication of what the actual changes are occurring.
The title of this thread says it all "Warning: Email account deletion for 'violation' of unknown policy". The first sentence of the thread sums it up even better.
A few posts down, all the information that's available is
Nothing specific about a new 2GB max size, yet every user has 48 hours to be in compliance with "whatever" it is that the new policy bot is enforcing--even tho no one really has a clue, other than a guess, what they need to do to be in compliance.
Besides the lack of communication, your systems still allow users to create new email boxes of "apparently" unlimited size.
Not to mention a written policy that basically clearly says you can't import any mail. That policy gets muddled tho because when questioned we are told that "well some importing into your inbox is ok, just not completely archiving completely in in this manner".
So yea... that transparency thing.....
