No, and I'm not sure how that even should work. If you used dovecot's
LDA I suppose it could at some point write you a warning mail, but if
you don't use it then you'd need some cron job to check for those.

I suppose it could also be done at imap/pop3 login, but that's a bit
kludgy and you might already be over quota by then. If you want that,
you could modify mail_executable to run a script which does that for

I guess the proper way to implement this would be with a plugin. I've no
