I want a 50MB quota for each user (using mbox files under var/spool/mail)

I guess first i rebuild 1.0 stable using the wiki info but am confused by
the syntax of the args line
why uid=5000 gid=5000

I am using default_mail_env = mbox:/var/spool/mail/%u

my users home dir are under /home but mail is under /var/spool/mail which is
where i want the quota = 52428800 (50MB)

auth default {
  userdb static {
args = uid=5000 gid=5000 home=/var/vmail/%d/%n

would my args be

args = uid=5000 gid=5000 home=/var/spool/mail/%u
