    Hello,

    I did some searching here the other day and couldn't really find any answers to a recent problem we've noticed. One of my customers mailbox quotas are always showing much higher then it actually is. I checked it today and in the Cpanel control panel for this particular email account mailbox is shows approx., 16MB's usage when actually it's only about 2MB's when checking the directory folder filesize directly from the shell command.

    Code:
    du -sh /home/stocksan/mail/stocksandoptions.com/bounce
    
    this shows the total usage of about 2MB's and the Cpanel indicates over 16MB's. Is there something I'm missing here or is there a way to correct this so the correct quota is displayed in the Cpanel control for mailbox quota usage??

    Were using the most recent RELEASE WHM/Cpanel version.

    Thanks,
    Mike
