### quota_exceeded_message¶

The message specified here is passed on to a user who goes over quota. Note, that Dovecot can read the quota-exceeded message from a file. The second example below shows this usage:

Example Setting:

quota_exceeded_message = Quota exceeded.
quota_exceeded_message = </path/to/quota_exceeded_message.txt


### quota_vsizes¶

With this setting, virtual sizes rather than physical sizes are used for quota-related calculations. The value yes is required here if you wish to use the quota back end called count.
