The U.S. Army and Defense Information Systems AgencyÂ have started to implementÂ mailbox size limits for the Defense Enterprise EmailÂ system in an effort to address increased storage consumption across the service.
The Army said WednesdayÂ the mailbox size limit works to control costs, facilitate system efficiency and shorten program startup times.
“Mailbox management at all user levels is critical to ensuring that Army storage requirements do not grow at unsustainable and unaffordable rates,” saidÂ John Howell, product director for enterprise content collaboration and messaging at the Army.
Lt. Gen. Robert Ferrell, Army chief information officer/G-6, noted that the service branch will annually review command mailbox limits to ensure they meet mission requirements.
The Army said it aims to reduce mailboxes that go over four gigabytes.
DISA announced its plan to cap mailbox sizes for the military in August.
