I would like to know the status of domain quota. I've seen a little on the
mailing list, but nothing complete.

Domain quotas are broken. Even if/when they do work, they add a lot of load to the system since vdelivermail has to look at all mailboxes for a domain to calculate the current quota used when delivering every message. There's no concept of a master maildirsize file for the entire domain.

They have been broken since at least 5.4.0. Probably broke somewhere in 5.3. Maybe they never worked -- I don't use them so I don't know.

I also don't know much about domains owned by users other than vpopmail. I had heard that there are various minor problems with doing so, but don't have details. Using system quotas is probably the best policy, but the downside is that once over quota, vdelivermail won't even be able to deliver quota warnings.
