To use maildirsize files you have to configure vpopmail without

--enable-domainquotas option.

Then each user with defined quota will have file called maildirsize in his maildir.

E.g. /home/vpopmail/domains/example.com/username/Maildir/maildirsize

This file contains information about disk space usage and is updated every time 

user deletes messages via pop3/imap or new message arrives.

You can read more about this method here:



Regarding messages w/o fields - what is in .qmail-default file in /home/vpopmail/domains/<your-domain>


Could you post all contents of this message (if it's not too big) here?


Honestly, I've never uninstalled vpopmail, but I think that if you remove domain name from

/var/qmail/control/virtualdomains  then mail for this domain will not be processed by vpopmail.

But there are no other options for virtual domains with qmail. Vmailmgr is way obsolete imho.

Also you could try 'make uninstall' :)

can you please explain what do you mean by "old-fashioned quotas, which are using maildirsize file in user's directory" and how can i set that....

Any suggestions why i am getting empty mails without sender, recipient, subject and content... what should i look for to rectify this??

thirdly how i can uninstall vpopmail completely from my server.
