vsetuserquota is not obsolete.

Honestly, in the past if a mailbox is using over 2GB of space I set it to NOQUOTA. I have mailboxes with 30GB+ of mail.

Hi Eric:

Here's a link where I got that from:


Have you had experience using mailbox quotas of 4, 6 or 8GB and confirmed that it works?

By the we typically use the vsetuserquota command like this setting a quota of disk space and total messages:

/home/vpopmail/bin/vsetuserquota f...@proginc.com 302428800S,8000C

Maybe this is obsolete.

vmoduser & vadduser have quota (-q) option which I use all the time.

# /home/vpopmail/bin/vadduser
vadduser: usage: [options] email_address [passwd]
options: -v (print the version)
         -q quota_in_bytes (sets the users quota, use NOQUOTA for unlimited)
         -c comment (sets the gecos comment field)
         -e standard_encrypted_password
         -n no_password
         -r[len] (generate a len (default 8) char random password)

# /home/vpopmail/bin/vmoduser
vmoduser: usage: [options] email_addr or domain (for each user in domain)
options: -v ( display the vpopmail version number )
         -n ( don't rebuild the vpasswd.cdb file )
         -q quota ( set quota )
         -c comment (set the comment/gecos field )
         -e encrypted_passwd (set the password field )
         -C clear_text_passwd (set the password field )

Hi - Does anyone know if qmail/vpopmail is still limited to a mail quota of 2GB ?
