    Hi, i've Centos 5.5 x86_64 with Postfix 2.3.3 installed via yum, i want enable quotas but following many guides all refer to editing a file, / usr / src / redhat / SPECS / postfix.spec; I don't have this file, perhaps it would have had to install the rpm source postfix-2.3.3-2.src.rpm? In my case, how can I apply the patch without losing configurations?

    Thanks

    I've try to use postfix-2.3.3-2.src.rpm but it give a error:

    Code:
    ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR
    
    This postfix.spec file may not work correctly.
    It was built for rhel-4.0, while you are running rhel-5.0.
    
    Please rebuild postfix.spec for your distribution by following the
    instructions in postfix.spec.cf.
    
    If this procedure does not allow you to produce a working package, please
    let me know.
    
    ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR
    
    Where i can find postfix 2.3.3 src for Centos 5.5 or fix it?

    Thanks

    Thanks, should I remove the previous version (installed via YUM) before installing the Postfix rpm file?

    I don't think this is necessary if you install the new src.rpm with the -Uvh switch:
    Code:
    rpm -Uvh postfix-2.3.3-2.1.el5_2.src.rpm

    My Postfix versione are more recent, i've remove and reinstall... now i've install the new rmp.
    Now how can test the quota features?
    I've store my mail user on /etc/passwd (create with useradd), for the quota i use edquota, can i set postfix for read this value and not mysql?

    Thanks a lot!

    I'm not sure if the quota patch works for system users because you can use normal system quota for them. I guess the patch is made to read quota values from a database.

    I think my problem is like this:

    http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8197

    In main.cf I've this line:

    bounce_template_file = /etc/postfix/bounce.cf

    If i send a message, the error is like this:

    <>: can't create user output file.
    Command output: procmail: Missing name procmail: Couldn't create
    ...

    I would show a quota message, how can i do?
    The server can check if a user has a nearly full box (90%) and automatically send an email notice to the user email address?

    Up...

    I just do not see the real error message but customizing an e-mail message with a friendly text...
    Know a script that monitors and send an email quota message?

    Thanks
