    Hello,

    exim is not delivering mail to a sub-account (local delivery) of a reseller on our server, even though the account has unlimited as disk space quota. The account has only used 23 M disk space.

    Exim log/exim -qff output shows;

    I have 139 such messages waiting to be delivered for this user. :(

    I tried changing the quota to 0 in /etc/quota.conf, I tried changing the quota through WHM. Nothing is working. I still get the same message.

    What's with exim?

    Go on, have a guess
    The MTA-imposed quota is the one set in cPanel for the individual mailbox, not the cPanel account.

    Perhaps documentation needs updating

    I have pdf versions of docs for;

    - cpanel
    - whm

    When I skimmed over and searched through the pdfs, there was no mention of it.

    I'll recommend, for the manual/docs to be updated with this piece of info in the troubleshooting section at least.
