Hi,

I have postfix running with courier-imap and courier-pop3. I have set the mailbox_size_limit = 10490000. Is there a way that I can set different levels on an account basis? Basically, I would like to limit everyone else that is using my mailserver to the above limit, but I would like my mailbox to be larger.

Thanks in advance,

-Pat

You need to define Per-User Inbox Size Limiting, you might need to install a patch for postfix,
have a look at the following page for details:

Hi yuzh,

I took a quick look at the link you provided. After reading part of it I noticed a comment that stated using MailDir/ is not supported for applying mailbox size limits. I am using MailDir/ so if this is true, is there another alternative I can pursue?

My goal is to set reasonable limits on how big any users MailDir/ can be, with the exception of my own. I appreciate the help and hope that I can accomplish this with a fairly easy solution.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yuhz,

I'll award you the points just for the last link. I can't believe I didn't notice that link before but I most likely missed it because I downloaded the documentation for Postfix and never went back to the Postfix site.

Anyways, that add-on page has some other things that I eventually wanted to do as well so that helps me out greatly.

Thanks very much for your help, and the quick responses :-)
