Hehe. I've now created a little script:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] cat /root/bin/top50.sh
/root/bin/space.sh |sort -u|xargs du -d 0|sort -n -r |head -n 50
where space.sh contains:
for i in `~vpopmail/bin/vdominfo -n | egrep -v ^$`
~vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -d -D $i
That should at least match the topX accounts.
I don't know how well it scales, though.

OS Quotas is the only way to go, I'm told.

I think you must create am OS-group and add the new domain with -g
Then you can use group-quotas to limit the disk-usage of the files of
this particular group.
I still have to try this myself- the problem is, there's no GUI to do
that, vqadmin doesn't handle GIDs.
