    I am getting emails with the message:

    but when I run du -ch I see that the customer is well within their limits at 274M.
    ISPConfig also shows the customer to be within their limits, but not the same as du -ch. It shows 84M.

    What is causing the erronous emails?

    To get the quota for a user, run:

    repquota -avug

    Maybe the user has files or folders in e.g. /tmp

    Thanks. Even though the site only reported using part of the allotted space, one of the mail users had used up the rest!

    Was this covered in the Centos 5 perfect install? If not then I guess anyone who's done the perfect install should add this to get a better reporting of users actual statistics?

    What would be the disadvantage of doing this? If there are no disadvantages, then why isnt this set by default? Thanks

    Geez, I completely missed this howto. I'm runnig through it now, looks like I've got everything setup correctly except the correct stats part, and changing the password encryption to md5.

    Just curious though, if I have sites setup already, will changing the password to md5 now cause any problems? Thanks
