Default Problem with quota and uebimiau-pop3

I've a problemc oncerning "quota".

When a user is over quota, he can no more access his mailbox.

We are using Maildir and webimiau access mail server via pop3 ...
Also IMAP client (es: thunderbird) blocks! (and so squirrelmail too)

Is there a solution to prevent this?

Another answer: in our setting uebimiau saves users mails in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/temp/webmail
where files belongs to admispconfig:admispconfig
So mail is not considered in user quota, is it?

Can I configure webimiau to use Imap?
In this way users's mails remains all in Maildir???

Now we have both squirrelmail (using imap) and uebimiau (using pop3) and folders created by the two programs are not seen by the other! And mail moved in a folder of one are no more visible from the other.

If we pass uebimiau to "imap" this problem is resolved?


thanks!!!

Giorgio

Are you using the mbox or the maildir format?
afair the problem with mbox is if you donwload your mails you need the double space currently used by the mails in you mailbox....
e.g. mails of 60MB, quota till 100, upon downloading them you will be 20Megs over quota...

This happens normally only with mailbox, not maildir as Ben posted.

These copies of the emails are not in quota.

no.

Use a maildir capable webmail client like squirrelmail.

We do use Maildir! When user is over quota imap doesn't work any more!
May be this is a problem of postfix ( in fact also external client as thunderbird blocks).

Postfix doesn't have anything to do with IMAP so it's not a Postfix problem.
What's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?

To solve your current problem you could increase the user's quota, let him fetch his mails and set the quota back to its original value.

You are right: it's courier imap that doesn't work when user is over quota. I imagine it needs to create some lock or cache in user dierectory.

I wonder if it's possible to tell postfix to reject new mail when user is near his quota ... so that he can still use imap to delete mails and free some space.

What's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?

Very long ... You need this?

tcp6 0 0 *:imaps *:* LISTEN 7438/couriertcpd
tcp6 0 0 *:imap2 *:* LISTEN 15234/couriertcpd

To solve your current problem you could increase the user's quota, let him fetch his mails and set the quota back to its original value.
Ok ... but we have many user and that it's a problem!

(furthermore IspConfig is very slow to write config files in a web with near 3000 users, change are really heavy)

Ok, you're using Maildir. Did you enable Maildir in ISPConfig (Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email)?
