what I have set up might be a little different from you have, but take a look at this: # ls -al total 26 drwx------ 12 vpopmail vchkpw 536 Nov 29 10:23 . drwx------ 3 vpopmail vchkpw 128 Sep 28 17:23 .. -rw------- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 775 Sep 18 2003 bincimap-cache -rw------- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 67 Jul 28 2003 bincimap-subscribed -rw------- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 56 Sep 18 2003 bincimap-uidvalidity drwxr-xr-x 2 vpopmail vchkpw 72 Aug 18 2004 courierimaphieracl drwx------ 2 vpopmail vchkpw 48 Nov 17 11:06 courierimapkeywords -rw-r--r-- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 58 Sep 24 2003 courierimapsubscribed -rw-r--r-- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 61 Nov 29 10:23 courierimapuiddb drwx------ 2 vpopmail vchkpw 112 Nov 29 10:29 cur drwx------ 6 vpopmail vchkpw 256 Aug 18 2004 .Drafts drwxr-xr-x 6 vpopmail vchkpw 224 Nov 15 17:12 .Junk -rw------- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 18 Mar 11 00:32 maildirsize drwx------ 2 vpopmail vchkpw 1120 Mar 5 03:05 new drwx------ 6 vpopmail vchkpw 256 Aug 18 2004 .Sent drwx------ 6 vpopmail vchkpw 224 Aug 18 2004 .test drwx------ 2 vpopmail vchkpw 48 Mar 5 03:05 tmp drwx------ 6 vpopmail vchkpw 328 Sep 13 12:42 .Trash this is a listing of a sample Maildir directory on my server. it has all these files and directories that have to do with courier IMAP. while they don't take much in some cases, sometimes they can take a couple of percent from the overall quota. in addition there are two directories (IMAP folders) .Junk (where all spam is forwarded) and .Trash (courier IMAP/squirrelmail default trash +folder). when you use squirrelmail to delete an email, it gets forwarded to .Trash, and maildirsize file is changed to not count this email +against quota. in addition, spam can quickly fill .Junk and the user will not be able to receive good email messages. so, the policy in my +place is to count only good email that sits anywhere but .Junk and .Trash. Also, to prevent users from having gigantic number of messages in +these two directories - there is a script that deletes anything that's older than 7 days in these two directories.
