Mail quota exceeded! on 2 servers, same day.
Any bit of help greatly appreciated...

I have 2 computers on Fedora Core 4, ISPConfig V 2.1.2, been super for about 2 years now (thanks!).

Yesterday, both servers had the same email issues : Mail quota exceeded!

I believe to have temporarily resolved it by turning off Trashscan v0.12 for all the email accounts on both computers, seems ok so far (no more "Mail quota exceeded!" messages).

I'm supecting it's a TrashScan update that caused this issue, Any Input from you folks will be appreciated.

But you have configured quota, haven't you?

rdells 3rd March 2008 20:54

Quota is not configured
Hi Falko, I did not configure Quota on these 2 computers. I will test one email account later today, maybe Trashscan has updated again, since the issue started.

Ok, I just tested with Trashscan turned back on, on one email account. It still does the "Mail quota exceeded" in the email messages I get.

Do you use maildir or mbox format to store mails on the server?

rdells 4th March 2008 21:45

I'm using traditional mbox
The "Maildir" is not checked within ISPConfig. So I'm assuming that I'm using traditional mbox.

Thanks for your time.

Please check the user accounts in ISPConfig if you have set a quota for them there.

MailSpace MB: -1
Hi Falco,

MailSpace MB: -1 and WebSpace MB: -1

I did not change anything on either of 2 servers, it just happened the other day, on their own. This is why I supect Trashscan update did something.

Strange, eh ?

How large are the emails that you sent? Maybe you reched the postfix message_size_limt ?
