Size

The size value type is used in Dovecot configuration to define the amount of space taken by something, such as a file, cache or memory limit. The size value type is case insensitive. The following suffixes can be used to define size:

  • B = bytes

  • K = kilobytes

  • M = megabytes

  • G = gigabytes

  • T = terabytes

The values can optionally be followed by “I” or “IB”. For example K = KI = KIB. The size value type is base 2, meaning a kilobyte equals 1024 bytes.
