i have detected one more strange thing:

qmailadmin shows the quota usage to. and qmailadmin shows the correct
quotas! if my testmail account (5MB quota) is empty, he shows a empty quota
usage. vuserinfo too. then I send a 2.5 MB email and vuserinfo shows 0%
quota usage (false) but qmailadmin shows me, that 2.5 MB are used in my
mailbox. but i can mail again a 4 mb email and this works. no quotas block
this email. qmailadmin shows, that 6.5 MB from 5 MB are used...

can I delete the maildirsize file and restart all daemons. will this file be
recreated and may be correct recreated? i think here is the problem..

thx for everyone who can help me
