    Hello what option to put in exim.conf so the email for a mailbox that have exceeded its quota not to be queued ? I have a lot of bounced email that is for a SPAM folder. The option in WHM to discard email that have exceeded their quota is enabled but seems this do not works.



    Thanks.

    Sorry, didn't see where this was talking about individual mailboxes.

    If a mailbox is full, the best bet is to just remove the mailbox quota completely. I don't know of any reason where a mailbox quota helps in any situation. The only way it will help is by keeping an account from reaching its overall quota if a mailbox exists on an account that is not being regularly checked. If a mailbox is not regularly being checked, then there's really no reason to have the mailbox set up in the first place.

    Atleast that's my opinion.

    Go on, have a guess
    I completely agree. If it's reached its quota, remove the mailbox or educate the user.
