:) just another comment about quotas in emails.. (though its also not for sendmail) you might also want to check QMAIL. theres a very nice installation guide for FreeBSD in http://freebsd.qmailrocks.org/ you'll just have to follow the step-by-step installation and in the end you'll have a nice web-based interface for maintaining users/virtual domains, with spam/virus filtering and other stuff :)

Subject: Re: quota and /var/mail


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.

/dev/ad0s1f on /usr (ufs, local, with quotas, soft-updates)
/dev/ad0s1g on /var (ufs, local, soft-updates)
procfs on /proc (procfs, local)

I just want the quota to read the Shell user (home directory) size plus the
INBOX mails
which stay in /var/mail/$UserName

  Currently the quota reads the home directory and ignores the $inbox
  Thak you mike
