    Does anyone know if there are limitations to the quotas of the virtual mailboxes?

    I setup a mailbox with 5GB of quota (5*1024*1024*1024 in the quota field), but when I was migrating mails from another mailserver (3GB of data) suddenly the IMAP client responded with an error telling "[ALERT] You exceeded your mail quota.".

    Any ideas?

    ok, I found a solution for the mailbox limitation issue; apparently the postfix configuration was limited to mailboxes with a size of ±50MB.

    After issuing following commands the max mailbox size is changed (the settings below will allow a virtual mailbox size of 50GB (50 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024):

    # change virtual_mailbox_limit parameter in postfix configuration
    postconf -e virtual_mailbox_limit=53687091200
    # restart postfix
    service postfix restart

    I hope this post will help others... :)
