    1. Is it possible to edit quota on mail box once it's created? Or to set quota on old accounts which were created before POP3 quota option?

    2. I have user which has old theme and no quota option yet. I checked Manage Mail Queue in WHM and it shows some messages waiting for that POP account. When I try to deliver it says mailbox is full (MTA-imposed quota exceeded while writing to file /home/****
    I checked inbox file it has only one message (test message from WHM) and it's 1 Kb big. I also had other mails with same error but when I run /scripts/fixquota they were delivered...except for this one POP3 account. Quota of for whole domain is 350 MB and they'r using about 20 MB. Any ideas why this happens?

    Thanks,
    Dzevad

    OK I solved the second problem by deleting /etc/quota and /etc/quota,v for that account (that account had default theme so they put 10 MB quota). But there is another problem, if I create new POP3 user and leave 10 MB as quota (default value) I can't send any messages to that account. When I try manually to deliver it from WHM it reports this:

    Message 171jRP-0002WX-00 is not frozen
    delivering message 171jRP-0002WX-00
    LOG: 0 MAIN
    == neko@omegabh.com T=virtual_userdelivery defer (-23): mailbox is full (MTA-imposed quota exceeded while writing to file /home/omega/mail/neko/inbox)

    Message is 60 KB big. In /etc/quota is says this: neko:10240 , is it value in KB...or maybe in bytes? And still leaves the question how can user modify quota for POP3 accounts if can't access shell or doesn't know where and what to edit?

    Anyone else having problems with quota for POP accounts? I have to delete /etc/quota files everyday in order for new accounts to be able to receive mail.
    Nick what's going on?

    Daniel thanks for link :) I guess I missed that thread...but still I see no solution in that thread about quotas, is it going to be fixed or removed? I can't delete /etc/quota files everyday and explain my users why that option doesn't work.

    Perhaps you could edit the theme page where accounts are created (take away the form field for the quota and test to see if it works) and chattr +i to it until you know the problem is solved. At least that's what I'd do...
