I actually used domain limits for about a year.  This was on a fairly
busy set of servers, and I couldn't figure out why the load was always
so high on the servers and there was so much network traffic.  Domain
limits are horrible.  On every message that goes through the system,
vpopmail adds up the size of all the messages in all the mailboxes.  I'm
still not sure why it's even a configuration option still...

If you want to provide a domain wide limit, use the kernels quota tools
and create the domain with a unique user ID.  It's pretty well
documented in the archives of the list.
