    I've a problem in our webservers. We have modified the mailing service so that... /home/user/mail is really a symlink that sends you to /mails/user/, we did this because we've created a new partition for emails to improve the performance, but now... the trouble:

    If I make a "du -sh" of the user folder, it shows correctly the disk quota occupied by the user, but on the cPanel, it doesn't sumarize the total because it cannot get the symlink size (it doesn't dereference it).

    Is there a fix for this? Or any kind of hack to fix it?
