It is used from the file *only* if you use maildrop.  If you use vpopmail 
the info is stored either in the password file or the database.

Yes.  Many people use other tools in addition to qmailadmin
that manipulate the database directly to control these things.
I know I'm not alone.  There have been several other posts by
others using the database that manipulate the db directly.  Doing
this would require *another* file to be opened and maintained
by the admin tools and again puts a "limit" into the control of
the end user.  I use the limits from the db, and enforce them
with system quotas.

This is for both user quotas and domain quotas.
