Ahh now that makes sense.
I used the Sarge install so I’m running Courier, instead of Dovecot.
Just looking through Google on how to do this.
But on the off chance, is there an easy solution, “apt-get maildir_quota_for_courier” would be nice ;)
Point me in the right direction J

So far so good. :)

What's that? I don't have a Sarge machine around and can't
lookup that parameter. It doesn't appear to be valid in Etch's Postfix
any more at least.

Only works for "local" delivery. Not what you want.

Sets the maximal size of an email that passes through Postfix. Also not
what you want.

Yes. What you want is *quota*. See http://wiki.dovecot.org/Quota
