Quota Backend: dirsize

The dirsize quota backend calculates the quota by finding all files in configured mail directories and summing up their sizes.

This works pretty fast with mboxes, but dirsize is a really bad idea with Maildirs’’’. It will end up eating all your CPU and disk I/O.

The dirsize quota backend supports storage quota limits, but not messages quota limits.


plugin {
  # 10MB quota limit
  quota = dirsize:User quota
  quota_rule = *:storage=10M
