I had a problem before where if I changed a user quota using vpop's 
vsetuserquota, the maildirsize file in the user's maildir will automagically 
get deleted, but never recreated by maildrop (for the domain I was doing 
filtering for) So that's why i put the check in mailfilter script to see if 
maildirsize needs to be recreated.

Shouldn't maildrop create the maildirsize file if it doesn't exist?

I think when I used vdelivermail, it created maildirsize when a new message 
was received in the mailbox that didn't have maildirsize in place, but with 
quota limit on it.

Now, as far as I recall, Bill Shupp made the maildir++ patch based on the code 
from maildrop, so I am not surprised it doesn't recreate the maildirsize 
file ;-)
