If you want to only have one set of quotas, you might consider switching to a Postfix/Maildir setup where your users' inboxes will be located in their home folder rather than in /var/mail.
It's a fairly easy switch: install Postfix from /usr/ports/mail/postfix, and then you just need to configure one line in your Postfix's main.cf to turn on Maildir support: http://www.postfix.org/faq.html#maildir Though, there might be a bit of a learning curve with respect to the differences between Sendmail and Postfix to convert the rest of your configuration over. It all depends on how complicated your current setup is. Patrick On 5/23/06, Marwan Sultan <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
