Default IMAP Quota (Display Remaining)

Hi All,
I'm experimenting with IMAP. I have never used until yesterday - have been using POP exclusively.

I've verified quota is installed and working correctly, I can send-receive messages using IMAP. What I cannot seem to find any information on is how to get an IMAP client to see what disk space is remaining.

Ie. RoundCube, Mail.app, Thunderbird.

All I get is Quota is supported but nothing in mail.app, unlimited in RoundCube (which I have limited for testing to 10MB).

Any ideas? Or is this a feature not supported in the way ISPConfig uses quota?

Thx.

I know that some apps, and some webmails get this information by reading a file called maildirsize. (Maildir++) More info by visiting the link below.

But I don't know if this is the case for Thunderbirde and RoundCube

I've been reading on the net and it looks like I might be able to get a round estimate using MailDir++. But instead of re-inventing the wheel. Has anyone else run into this situation - Getting IMAP programs to display quotas? Or is this not a typically used feature for IMAP users?
