If you encounter slow page loading when you open your Email Accounts page, that means you are facing excessive disk space usage or just too many accounts. You have 2 options to speed up the loading of that page.

Technique #1: Using Cache Option

By default, the pop email disk usage caching option is disabled. You can enable this option by editing the directadmin.conf configuration via SSH

vi /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf

Add below line into the directadmin.conf file to enable disk usage cache:
pop_disk_usage_cache=1

Setup cronjob by editing the following command:
vi /etc/cron.d/directadmin_cron

Add below line into the command:



NOTE: The above command is applied to ALL domain name. To apply to a single domain name, you need to type the following command instead:


NOTE: Domain.com is referring to a specific target domain name you wish to apply this cronjob command.

Restart crond service

service crond restart

Technique # 2: Edit Directadmin.conf


vi /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf

Disable pop3 disk usage completely by adding below line:

count_pop_usage=0
