I'm sure you are all tired of hearing about quotas and how they won't decrease once file has been deleted.There is no patch called "maildir-quota.patch" that is supported by vpopmail. I don't think you have it patched correctly.
I understand there are some issues with quota support in qmail+vpopmail. I just joined this mailing list, so if this was answered recently, I apologize. I think I am a little confused because vpopmail claims to support maildir quotas for qmail-pop3d, however there seem to be issues with it.
The problem seems well documented, the solution however doesn't.
Email is sent, the maildirsize file grows, it approaches the quota size (90%) and emails the quotawarn.msg. However when the emails are removed, the maildirsize file is the same.
I don't smoke, but I did use the patch. I used `patch -p0 maildir-quota.patch` . I'm assuming it worked, there were no errors. I'm not too familiar with the patch command, but after some research, I think I found the right syntax to use.
The only included in the stable release is qmail-pop3d-maildirquota.patch.gz, and is located in the contrib directory. There is a newer version, that is available with the development versions of vpopmail, and it's filename is qmail-maildir++.patch. I recommend this one. Both are available on my site, www.shupp.org. Re-patch qmail with one of these, and that should solve your problems. i.e.:
lynx --source http://www.shupp.org/patches/qmail-maildir++.patch | patch -p0
