    Has their been a resolution for this. We've also received sporadic reports, and have been able to confirm the exact same thing occurring within several of the accounts we host. Here is the contents of the maildirsize file from the latest report of this type:

    209715200S,0C
    3557 1
    -3557 -1
    11890 1
    36694 1
    -48584 -2
    38973 1
    -38973 -1
    6749 1
    -6749 -1
    6980 1
    -6980 -1
    9203 1
    -9203 -1

    In our case, they have a 200MB email account quota, but when they have 10MB or so in their account, they are unable to receive an email with an attachment that is only a few MBs large, here's what showed up in the bounced message headers in this particular case:

    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    user@domain.com
    Mailbox quota exceeded

    ------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------
    ------ The body of the message is 14845649 characters long; only the first
    ------ 106496 or so are included here.
