So the domain quotas aren't stored in a file, but rather in whatever database
backend you happen to be using?

I'd think that if the domain quotas could be stored in a file, that a ratification
could be made to the maildir++ standard. Perhaps the maildirsize file could contain
a reference to the location of the domain quota file. This would be quite flexible
I'd think.

What do you think?

Either way, I think this functionality needs to be implemented in a way
that Courier-IMAP and other programs can live with. It should be standardized,
otherwise vpopmail will be implementing a feature that no-one else can
realistically use without linking vpopmail's libraries into their code
(which I mentioned in another thread as being a bit of a pain sometimes).
