Is the problem that mail doesn't actually get deleted when IDLE is  
used, or that a client being in IDLE is somehow causing qmail-local to  
give the quota errors incorrectly? I can't see how the latter would be  
possible, IDLE really has nothing to do with quota..

What IMAP client(s) are you using?
