Default Remove Hard Stop with mail quota

I followed the Ubuntu 8.04 postfix mysql guide here.

Everything is working great, but I wanted to know how to accomplish one other thing.

Instead of a hard stop, we would like to only be notified when a user has exceeded their mailbox limit (already doing this) but still allow them to receive mail.

I am assuming it is somewhere in the main.cf, but not sure where. Thanks for the help!

Anyone have an idea on this?

Need to remove the hard-stop when the quota is reached so users can still get email, but incur an additional charge

I think you have to modify the users table and replace the quota column with two new columns (e.g. softquota and hardquota). You'd then also have to modify /etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_mailbox_limit_maps.cf and probably /usr/local/sbin/quota_notify.
